Background For Murmansk region the problem of drug abuse and illegal drug trafficking constitutes one of the challenges to the social and economic welfare of the population. Very important challenge is the intersectoral collaboration of all relevant parties. Each agency is implementing activities to prevent substance abuse and HIV spread. But they touch upon only one side of the problem. Presently the governmental and non-governmental organisations of Murmansk region have almost no experience in the organisation of intersectoral activities. There are no modern algorithms of implementation of intersectoral actions that take into account the demanding present situation with spread of narcotics and increased incidence of HIV/AIDS and drug abuse.
Objectives The overall objectives of the project are reduction of drug use and drug-related harm in Murmansk Region and development of successful partnership models to fight drug abuse and drug-related harm.
Specific objectives/indicators The purpose of the project is that good practices are identified and recommendations made for Murmansk Region to combat drug use and drug-related harm.
Results The expected results of the project are:
1. Relevant stakeholders identified and working groups formed,
2. Experiences from previous and ongoing projects in Northwest Russia collected and assessed,
3. International experiences of successful partnership models collected and assessed,
4. Good practices identified and recommendations made for Murmansk Region.
