Day of Action 2017

In Durrës, Aksion Plus organised a 2 week long awareness campaign for two weeks, with a focus on ensuring the rights of PWUD and increasing access to social, health and legal services. A photo campaign was held, and was well attended by stakeholders, including policy makers, representatives from the Ministries of Health, Education, and Justice, key populations and well known TV and music stars. Together with Caritas Albania, a beach event on 26th June was held with banners & information dissemination. Local TV covered the event and many passers-by were engaged.

In Tirana, actions were focused around opioid substitution clinics – providing one on one conversation and counselling on how to raise awareness for PWUD (and other key populations) and their rights. Aksion Plus also launched an online blog inviting young people, their beneficiaries and partners such as Y-peer, YMCA, Youth Voice network to discuss “What would you do about drug user’s rights, if you were the Prime minister”.
