Day of Action 2016

A community sensitization event was organised by TACOSODE and the Tanzanian Network of People Who Use Drugs in three Dar es Salaam municipalities (Ilala, Jangwani-Kinondoni, Tandika-Temeke).

The event included advocacy activities to reach out to the mayor of Dar es Salaam and former EAC Parliamentarians, media outreach (reaching out to ITV Media, Chanel 10 TV station, SIBUKA TV station and Clouds TV station, among others), an advocacy activity aiming at cleaning up the environment in all MATT Centres of the Dar es Salaam region, advocacy outreach focused on community members including TANPUD and Medecins du Monde to raise awareness of hepatitis C, HIV and other harm reduction services for drug users.

Finally, a number of community members volunteered to conduct TB testing in Ilala and Tandika camps, accompanied by a group sensitisation session by trained counsellors.
