Thursday, June 10, 2010 (All day) to Friday, June 11, 2010 (All day)
Liverpool, UK

The two day advocacy workshop familiarized participants with the integrated TB/HIV and harm reduction policy guide to address the problem of HIV associated TB among drug users, and how to catalyze implementation in countries with drug use problems which is critical to the health of drug users and contributes towards universal access of TB and HIV services for people living with HIV. The workshop held in Liverpool, UK from June 10-11, 2010 was highly interactive and participants developed a better understanding of the concerns and needs of the community of people who use drugs around TB and HIV and how best to respond to these needs. It also gave those attending an opportunity to network with each other and build momentum to catalyze implementation of a fully integrated approach based on the needs of people who use drugs in their countries and regions. The next steps are to develop strategies to enhance community mobilization for implementation of collaborative TB/HIV and drug user services and demand generation for the services.
