Hridaya Project

Community Action on Harm Reduction (CAHR) expands harm reduction services to 200 injecting drug users (IDUs), their partners and children. The programme protects and promotes the rights of these groups by fostering an enabling environment for HIV and harm reduction programming in Sitarganj block of Udham Singh Nagar.
CAHR is supported by Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Government of Netherlands India HIV/AIDS Alliance. In India, CAHR is called Hridaya Project. This project helps build the capacity of service providers, makes harm reduction programmes more gender-responsive, improves access to services and advocates for the rights of IDUs. In addition to providing services, Hridaya has a strong capacity building component to support advocacy, knowledge management and improved services for IDUs.
