Over the years, the programme strategies and approaches have evolved to not only provide essential harm reduction services but technical assistance and delivery of a comprehensive package of services. The programme has been successful in strengthening harm reduction services for PWID, enhancing the capacity of TI NGOs, the formation of state drug-user forums to support community members/groups become part of the decision-making process, building the leadership of frontline workers, sensitizing and engaging law enforcement agencies. The programme is complementing the national programme by closely working with the State AIDS Control Society (SACS).
Supported by Frontline AIDS, Alliance India is implementing Hridaya, current cycle 2016-2020, in five states of India: Uttarakhand, Uttar Pradesh, Delhi, Mizoram and Sikkim. It is designed to address the capacity and service delivery gaps and raise the standards of the national HIV prevention programme. Considering the changing patterns among drug users and their sexual behaviour as per the recent national studies, Hridaya project added to the design – a pilot intervention at one site in Delhi to address the unmet needs of spouses and female partners (FSP) of male IDUs and Female Injecting Drug Users (FIDU). The intervention provided information and awareness on the prevention and treatment of HIV and sexually transmitted infections as well as related services. The FSP intervention intends to develop a differentiated model of delivering essential services to the unreached FSPs of male Drug Users as well as Female Injecting Drug Users.
