Title: 'Drugs, risk less (DR-)'. (Update of: 'Development and distribution of harm reduction information and brochures').
Summary: This project (re-named 'Drugs, risk less/DR-') aims to sensitise drug users to the risks related to the use of psychotropic products and to inform them on the means to reduce these. It follows a logic of promotion of health, aiming to promote responsibility among the users. It concretely aims: to improve the knowledge of the users on (licit or illicit) drug consumption and how to reduce risks in case of consumption; to promote individual and social skills development among the users by offering them the opportunity to reflect on their consumption, to make choices in respect of their health and to keep control of their consumption; to improve the knowledge of the consumers on the professional relays and aid, information and screening structures, especially at a local level; to sensitise young consumers in leisure or recreational settings; and to promote participation of drug users in the project (peer-to-peer action). >>

Title: Snowball Peers HIV, Hepatitis and Overdose Prevention Operations
Summary: The 'Snowball' operations are prevention operations of AIDS, hepatitis and risks related to drug consumption such as overdose, led by peers. They originally essentially targeted injecting drug users (IDUs). It then broadened to other routes of consumption, and in general, to a public who have very few contacts with traditional prevention and care structures, because they are very fragile. The drug users (DUs) are recruited (group of 10). They follow at least six sessions of training with a duration of approximately two hours each. Then, provided with a questionnaire, with information brochures and with harm reduction material ('sniff kit', sterile syringes), each trained 'jobiste' (voluntary worker) is instructed to make contact with approximately 10 IDUs and to recruit among them new workers for another operation. This fieldwork phase lasts about 15 days. Thereafter, the jobistes come back for a collective and individual evaluation session. About 500 jobistes a year are hired in Belgium. The project was also launched in prison since 2002. Previously, thanks to European funds, the snowball operations had been spread to Portugal, Greece, Italy, Slovenia, Spain and Finland. These funds no longer exist. The snowball operations continue in Spain, but no information was available on the other countries. >>
