In Tashkent, the organisation Ишонч ва Хает organised a gathering of people who use drugs, where participants shared their unique stories and struggles: family, domestic, police violence, health issues, etc. “The most important thing is to be understanding and supportive, because we are people! Drug policies should become more humane and anchored in health and human rights. It is the support from my relatives and close ones that helped me survive, to live, to love and feel a bit happier”, said Catherine. “After talking about it with doctors, you realise many are still in the dark”, said Nabira, from Nukus.
