Druglink article 1994 – Healthy women by Janet Hanslope

Building on an existing outreach initiative, the Wirral Drugs Service developed an HIV peer education project among drug using women working as prostitutes. Education/training sessions were followed by a residential weekend. An assessment suggested the project successfully engaged the women and that HIV prevention gains would result. Closely involving the women in planning the project and demonstrably valuing their contributions were essential to its success.
