Organisations: Aksion Plus, Epoka e Re Centre.
Under the auspices of the International Day against Drug Abuse and Drug Trafficking (June 26th), Aksion Plus conducted the “Support, Do not Punish” campaign in the city of Fier. Initially, a meeting was held between the representatives of our center, the representative of the Regional Health Directorate in the city of Fier, staff and volunteers of the Epoka e Re Center. During this meeting, a discussion took place about the need to open a new branch in Fier city for the delivery of methadone and the provision of medical and psycho-social assistance to drug users. We discussed about the current services offered to users by providing them more detailed information. Finally, the message was that young people are the ambassadors of sensitizing the general population to this phenomenon.
Together with volunteers from Epoka e Re, were distributed leaflets, brochures that aimed to inform the general public about drugs, harm reduction and HIV / AIDS. A meeting was also held with representatives of the City Hall of Fier.
