Project: HIV prevention for primary sexual partners of people who use drugs in Hanoi

Sponsor: Health Policy Initiatives/Associates Inc (HPI/Abt)

Time: 2010 - 2011

 


Around 30% of male injecting drug users in Hanoi has HIV. Among them, many have long-term girl friend and wife (primary sexual partners -PSP). The women are often very close with their partners despite suffering from stigma and difficulties in life.

However, only a small number of drug users and PSP practice condom use and safe sex. A research conducted by Abt Associates in 2008 shows that only 17% PSP in Hanoi report regular condom use, while 15% women participated in the research have HIV. 
Nevertheless, there has been no specific interventions for PSP, their voice is still not heard.

  • Prevent HIV transmission for PSP
  • Raising awareness for coordinators, outreach workers & clients
  • Develop and expand community-based organizations
