Out Reach work in response to the situation
In response to the situation, primarily taking the documented harm into consideration. A rapid situational assessment was done by medical professionals to access the harm, calling for Project proposals for Comprehensive care and support for People who inject substances. These Pictures are of peer based service model, which was indeed effective through out the Project's period. These people regularly check hot-spots, clear used needles and syringes, clear all contaminated paraphernalia. Educated people who inject on safe injection practices. Prepare and participate in awareness campaigns on Injection drug use, HIV/AIDS and Hepatitis C. These social workers were Trained by Professionals on First-Aid, what to do when an over-dose occurs, Dressing up the wounds, How to handle contaminated paraphernalia, Work related hazards and safety. They work in places no other social worker would go and do their job dutifully. Some places have unbearable stench of urine and human faeces around. Abandoned places automatically become toilets for the toilet less slums or the homeless. These places are chosen by people who inject as it is not like smoking something or drinking something. Smoking and drinking still have and enjoy some form of acceptance, in the modern society. But not Injection drug use. The stigma associated with injecting drug use makes people who inject to choose places where no one wants to be. These social workers livelihood is based on continuation of the projects. When the project or a study ends, the social workers who worked with dedication and passion, simply fade or drift away seeking other source of employment.
