  • It gave me idea about my own country that I don’t even know before. It opened my eyes on many things about my country and drug addicts, HIV positive patients.

  • I am better prepared now to make our people aware of HIV/AIDS, drug abuse and there relation.
  • The training has provided many information that will be used in terms of training and designing the intervention for HIV & HCV among IDUs in my country.
  • The training has helped a lot to increase and consolidate knowledge of HIV/AIDS and IDU.
  • Learned how HIV/AIDS patients are being treated in Indonesia, harm reduction and how it’s being done in rest of the world.      
  • What Indonesia today could be the future scenario of Maldives? Maldives is on the edge of National disaster cause of IDUs and it may cause outbreak of HIV/AIDS infection.
  • Drug addiction and HIV/AIDS spread is closely related specially in case of IDUs and it has to be seriously taken into consideration.
  • I learned that we need to have a better understanding of drug users specially IDUs, VCT limitations and the proper way of communicating and counselling.
  • Every day we learnt from the lecturer how to deal with different stages of drug addiction.
  • I learned that we need to try to convince the policy makers, the risk of HIV spread among newly emerging IDUs as a national agenda to place intervention.
  • The IDUs are the most endangered among the risk group for HIV infection. The whole week training gave me a whole lot of new information. It’s a success.
  • It was a very useful week in my life. This training is essential to me.
  • Excellent but it was a little hectic. Too much information in too short period, could have extended the number of days. Facilitators were excellent and friendly
