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.
