About

Nai Zindagi

 

Nai Zindagi, Pakistan was established in 1989 by a group of personally affected individuals to provide a range of rights and needs-based services to marginalized people who use drugs and those associated and vulnerable, in particular their spouses/sexual partners and families. 

We prevent the transmission of HIV, reduce drug use related harms/risks, and provide opportunities for socio-economic rehabilitation based on innovations, evidence, contextual and cultural appropriateness, and in close consultation with our beneficiaries.

What We Do

OUR MISSION

Our primary aim is to work with people and communities affected by drug use, HIV and AIDS
and empower them to improve their knowledge, health, socio-economic well being and access to essential
services.

Our mission in the next three years is to reach adequate number of people who use drugs, their wives, intimate partners and children with comprehensive HIV prevention services in Pakistan and provide treatment, care and support to persons already living with HIV and AIDS. 

The reality is that poverty, drug use, and HIV require a wide range of strategic responses in our context. The continuum provides an effective framework by combining the various responses: street-based outreach programmes and drop-in centres, drug treatment, employment training and employment, HIV and AIDS treatment care, and support services.

Outcome

Rights based health and social services for persons affected by drug use, HIV and AIDS
