EU experts trained Tajik specialists on social work with people who use drugs

Fifteen participants of a final two-day workshop held on 24-25 July in Dushanbe for representatives of NGOs, social workers and other specialists received certificates of the Frankfurt University.

They completed the set of trainings on social work with people who use drugs and community participation. Three experts from “Deutsche AIDS-Hilfe”, the German organisation working with HIV-positive people who use drugs (PWUDs), conducted this training.

The fourth workshop focused on the presentation of training materials for outreach workers (J Key Cards that were developed in cooperation with Tajik experts during the previous trainings) and discussion of some options of the answers on the training cards. The trainers presented topics on how to train HIV-positive people who use drugs (PWUDs) on the overdose prevention, on low threshold approaches in working with women who use drugs (experience from the EU project "HA-REACT" on mental disorders among PWUDs) and what outreach workers should know and be able to do.
