This package is designed to help organize workshops that orient and train public health policy-makers, programme developers, programme managers, implementers and field workers in outreach to injecting drug users.

The workshops draw on experience from training materials and tools used in different parts of the developing and developed world. The approach advocated in these module aims to contribute significantly to the prevention of HIV transmission among injecting drug users. As such, the workshops you are going to facilitate are an integral part of a renewed global and national commitment to HIV prevention.

The training package embraces four workshop modules that are arranged in a sequence to assist the training of a wide range of participants, depending on their training needs.
