Drop-in Centre (Female)

AHRN programmes are mainly located in so-called ‘sensitive areas’ like border areas, mining areas and civil unrest areas in Kachin State. As such it create access for Most-at-risk Population (People who inject drugs, Migrant workers, Sex workers) in areas where only limited (or none) other services are available. Since they are border or mining areas, there is large influx of migrant workers accessing the services and hence a multitude of ethnic groups (and religions) that are being serviced.
Although only a small number of the reached clients are female, specific gender activities (like specific DIC for Female Drug Users in Seng Taung, specific room for females in the care center, women who use drugs peer group, outreach with condoms dissemination and screening and treatment for drug using sex workers, female staff on all levels…) are implementing.
