Transition management in Georgia: everyone deserves a second chance!
Everyone deserves a second chance in life. But how can you best support people who were just released from prison? What does quality support look like where it comes to the rehabilitation and resocialisation of inmates, former inmates and probationers? And what level of additional support does a person who uses drugs need in this process?

A new project in Georgia intends to set the standard. Starting in January 2017, the Georgian Center for Information and Counseling on Reproductive Health - TANADGOMA - dives into ‘transition management’. Mainline is proud to partner with them in this important, EU-funded project.

Nai Zindagi (Pakistan); reinventing harm reduction
Nai Zindagi – a non-profit organisation based in Pakistan - currently functions as Mainline’s most important partner in innovation under the Bridging the Gaps 2 programme. Nai Zindagi and Mainline look back at an effective and professional 10-year collaboration.

The partnership is important to Mainline as Nai Zindagi is a true learning organisation that reinvents harm reduction based on a combination of evidence and an open mind.

However, we managed to get a complete overview of their important work.
