Uma rede global para a promoção dum debate aberto e objetivo sobre a política de drogas
A Youth R.I.S.E é uma rede internacional liderada por jovens, estabelecida para reduzir os riscos e danos associados ao uso de substâncias e política de drogas entre jovens e prover uma plataforma para o engajamento da juventude em políticas que afetam suas vidas.
Rumah Cemara, with the support of Youth Rise, has successfully involved 50 young people who use drugs in a community- based programme that provides peer services for people affected by drug use and HIV in Bandung, Indonesia.
The purpose of this study is to determine the impact of drug policies on young people who use drugs through questionnaires, and to make recommendations for the improvement of drug policy for young people.
Youth RISE is a global, youth-led network advocating for harm reduction and drug policy reform, and represents the rights and needs of young people who use drugs. They are currently recruiting our International Working Group (IWG) for 2013.
The Rumah Cemara Youth Program is initiated to address some of these issues, and will provide information and support to young people who use drugs in a non-judgemental environment with high participation of the young people in the program.
Youth RISE had a busy few weeks in Nigeria in September engaging with government agencies, local civil society organisations and the drug user community to continue and strengthen our work in the region.
