Bridging the Gaps continues!

Mainline is very excited that the Bridging the Gaps programme was awarded a second phase of funding. In August 2015, the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs announced that Bridging the Gaps will be one of their key sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) and HIV/AIDS partnerships for the next five years (2016-2020). Our shared goal remains the same: to improve the health and rights of three key populations: sex workers, people who use drugs and LGBT people.

Mainline is one of the Dutch partners in the programme that focuses on the health and rights of people who use drugs. We are happy and grateful to have the opportunity to continue our support for local partners and drug users in at least five countries.
