Legal framework: We have key partners between ministries and the programmes provide a wide range of services.

Major development: role played by public authorities and NGOs. Addiction is now seen as a disease.

In 2009, a number of projects were initiated for more than 1,000 drug users for HIV prevention, treatment and care; provide grounds for civil society organisations and technical assistance through capacity building; training programmes among stake holders and service providers; development of a harm reduction approach.
