In October, 2011, Institute for Social Developments Studies (ISDS) public the  toolkit “Understanding and challenging stigma toward  Drug users and HIV in VietnamToolkit for action ”.

This toolkit was developed by Dr Khuat Thu Hong, Nguyen Thi Van Anh, and Khuat Thi Hai Oanh from the ISDS, with assistance from Ross Kid, Laura Brady, Laura Nyblade and Anne Stangl

of the International Center for Research on Women (ICRW).

The main purpose of this toolkit aims to:

a. Educate servive providers, law enforcement agents, rehabilitation center officials and the community about addiction, the lives of injecting drug users and how stigma and lack of human rights fuels HIV transmission.

b. Build public awareness of the problem of stigma and discirimination toward injecting drug users as well as support and commitment to stop stigma and discrimination.

c. Get service providers, law enforcement agents, rehabilitation center officials, and the community to start developing new codes of practice for how they counsel, test, and treat IDU/Drug addict patients.

A key aim of the toolkit is to help IDU break out of a life on the margins, build improved ralations with their families and communities, reassert their rights, protect themselves and their partner from HIV and other STIs, and get better access to health sevices. While all drug users and drug addicts are subject to stigma and discrimination, this toolkit focuses on IDUs because they more than other drug users, are at high risk of contracting HIV through needle use.

This toolkit  is published in Vietnamese and English and is now available at ISDS’s library. This booklet is available for educational and communicational work of individuals, families, organizations.
