Humpty Dumpty Resilience Education Project - This is a ‘learning together’ evidence-based teaching and learning series. It is aimed at assisting parents, mentors, teachers, and/or coaches to develop aspects of resilience in the emerging adult, specifically focusing on denying, and/or delaying uptake of alcohol and other drugs. This pilot is an introduction to the series and therefore specifically pitched at both facilitators and the target audience – teenagers, giving both an inclusive preview session of the projects focus, style and intent.

The #warondrugs is built on racism. It's time to decolonise drug policies. While repressive drug policies have weaponised the state against communities of colour, it is sadly crucial to remember it was in part designed to do just that.

Desafortunadamente, el COVID-19 durará indefinidamente entre todos nosotros, por lo que las Comunidades Terapéuticas (CTs) deben organizarse para llevar a cabo los nuevos procedimientos de recepción, especialmente teniendo en cuenta que el público atendido por los CT tiene grandes posibilidades de contaminarse con COVID- 19 debido a su vulnerabilidad social. Las CTs que tienen estructura, recursos humanos capacitados, garantía de equipo de protección personal (PPE) adecuado, flujo de notificaciones con el Departamento de Salud del municipio y plan de contingencia, pueden llevar a cabo el proceso de cuarentena (14 días) dentro de la propia organización. Por eso, la FEBRACT organizó este Manual de acuerdo con las orientaciones de la NOTA TÉCNICA PÚBLICA Nº 01/2020 de la Agencia Nacional de Vigilancia Sanitaria – ANVISA.

Iran was among the first countries struck by the COVID-19 pandemic and is currently among the highest infection prevalence and mortality in the world. Evidence shows people who use drugs and specifically those without homes have potentially higher probability of contracting and transmitting COVID-19 due to limited access to personal hygiene facilities and medical care, and suffering from underlying diseases.

CHILD ABUSE #SUB-SAHARAAFRICA #NIGERIA Sub-Sahara Africa is estimated to have the highest number of cases related to child abuse one way or the other. Starting from the trafficking to molestation then the misuse of Children candidacy is one of the pertinent issues yet to be resolve in this region part of Africa (world in diaspora). Cases of Child trafficking have been ongoing in some notable parts of Africa which are due to the cost of living which cannot be guaranteed by our so-called parents or guardians. This cause has grown worse over the years; this has caused a lot of guardians to engage in trafficking. Rape, on the other hand, is on an alarming rate, let’s take for instance the case of Ivory Coast and South Africa. We know that this has been ongoing for years and up till now, no physical solution has been provided.  What of the case of molestation which is worse in Nigeria. https://asyarfs.org/2020/06/10/child-abuse-sub-saharaafrica-nigeria/

Prisons and detention facilities are a high-risk environment for the spread of #COVID19, especially where they are overcrowded, cannot maintain adequate standards of sanitation and hygiene, and are limited in their capacity to ensure access to medical treatment. In several countries around the world, the heightened risks of #COVID19 infection in prisons, combined with new restrictions on visits and communication with people outside prison, has intensified anxiety and tensions amongst people held within them, in some cases resulting in riots, escapes and violence. Ensuring the safety and health of both prison staff, and people deprived of liberty, requires urgent action to reduce the risks and consequences of widespread #COVID19 infection. This advocacy note makes recommendations for reducing such risks and consequences, including by early release from, and suspension of arrests and admission into, prions, jails and other detention settings including drug rehabilitation centres in Southeast Asia.
