Day of Action 2013

In Mauritius, the “Support. Don’t Punish” Day of Action was coordinated by Prévention Information et Lutte contre le Sida (PILS) and Collectif Urgence Toxida (CUT), which held a press conference to raise awareness on the importance of providing harm reduction measures and decriminalising drug use to tackle the HIV epidemic. PILS and CUT also organised a gathering of about 80 people wearing “Support. Don’t Punish” T-shirts in support of the campaign, to take pictures and create a video.

The Day of Action reached a large audience through intense social media activity and attracted the attention of the media.
