Description: 

In 2013, CVC/COIN gave Community Action Resource (CARe) a Mini-Grant of US$20,000 for a project to pilot HIV and AIDS prevention among drug users on Port of Spain’s east side. The project’s intensive intervention in the streets lasted from March through July 2014 and it: 1) delivered harm reduction to 613 drug users, surpassing the target of 500; 2) gathered information on their characteristics, behaviour and experience with health, social and rehabilitation services; 3) facilitated voluntary HIV and STI counselling and testing.
