Challenge

Moscow is a huge city with a large and growing and a very diverse chemsex scene, but in the context of Russia's repressive anti-LGBTQ and anti-drugs policies all the activities are underground. The state drug policy is built on repression, prohibition of access to information about drugs and to harm reduction measures. There are no drug or legal services available to people involved in chemsex while the demand for this information and for support is very very high.

Solution

ARF started to get into chemsex scene in 2018 when we were approached by event organizers who asked to provide health and legal information and materials during their events. Since then ARF has built partnerships with event organizers, community activists and carried out regular activities. Apart from an emergency microproject for 3 months, we do not have resources for this work. This mircoproject will fund a comics brochure publishing and prevention materials as well as some outreach time.

Long-Term Impact

ARF believes that the society should be able to protect its most vulnerable members, such people who use drugs and other stigmatised groups. If the government refuses to help, its time for the communities to organize. ARF helps people who use drugs to protect their health, their dignity and human rights. We help to prevent HIV and hepatitis, avert overdose, and obtain drug treatment. Our main mission is to give people hope, support and respect they deserve!
