Women who inject drugs in India remain largely neglected in the current HIV response. Marginalised and at risk, these women have inadequate access to services and information they need to protect their health and wellbeing. Unsafe sexual behaviour and shared injecting equipment increase their risk for HIV and hepatitis C infection. Women who inject drugs need a comprehensive harm reduction response that provides accessible, targeted, and quality interventions to improve their health and protect their rights. They can wait in the shadows no longer.

This video was created by India HIV/AIDS Alliance's Andhra Pradesh office for the Frontiers Prevention Project (FPP). This programme was implemented from 2002-2008 with the support of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. FPP's main aim was to strengthen HIV prevention efforts with key populations at risk, and the programme was based on two principles designed to increase the effectiveness of intervention strategies. Firstly, it focused on addressing key populations through campaigns to increase awareness, change behaviour, and reduce their risk of acquiring or transmitting sexually transmitted infections, including HIV. And secondly, it developed specific intervention strategies in close collaboration with members of the targeted populations. This was done with the core belief that engagement with key populations, as part of a comprehensive package of services and interventions, will not only reduce HIV transmission amongst key populations, but will also slow the spread of HIV more widely in the population as a whole. Complementing the FPP was the Avahan India AIDS Initiative which Alliance India has implemented in Andhra Pradesh since 2003.

This is a video snapshot of the first National Hijra Habba that took place in New Delhi on 2nd June 2012. The event brought together members of transgender and hijra communities from all over India, along with stakeholders from government, donor agencies and civil society. The national consultation examined efforts to achieve equality for transgenders and hijras and drew attention to the significant challenges faced by these communities. The day included speeches, experience sharing and community performances. In-depth discussions were held on issues including social entitlements, legal status, violence, HIV/AIDS, economic vulnerabilities, and feminization.

Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code criminalises same-sex sexual behaviour which violates basic human rights and undermines effective HIV programming. Criminalisation makes it difficult for HIV services to reach men who have sex with men or involve them in health promotion. This video explains the story of why and how activists are lobbying to get the law banning homosexuality in India overturned.
