Organisations: ALCIS, Institut Français de Bukavu
ALCIS organized a community rally to build resistance against the prevalence of hate crimes against drug users in Bukavu. As this campaign is a first in Bukavu and in the Democratic Republic of the Congo in general, ALCIS has succeeded in reaching people’s minds and mobilising social actors and human rights actors for future concerted actions in favour of the rights of drug addicts. Article 2, paragraph 5 of Law No. 08/011 of July 14, 2018 on the protection of people living with HIV / AIDS has enlightened our allies on the DRC’s accountability to the national protection of users of HIV / AIDS and drug addicts.
