    19. 20. International Experience I Iran IRAN
    20. 21. Iran has a big land border with Afghanistan one of the biggest heroin productors of the world. In 2000 in the South West part of Iran inmates as well as their families in the community where found out to be HIV positive . Iran
    21. 22. A courageous group of doctors started advocacy for politicians and religious authorities that the only hope would be Harm Reduction approach. They got support to implemente NEPs, drop in centers and methadone clinics all over the country and are being respected as a model. Iran
    22. 23. Their decision, was followed and coordinated by all levels of Government commitment, including the Legislative and Judiciary Power. Recently the head of the Supreme Court of Ira, sent a letter to all his fellows requesting them to support Harm Reduction (peer education) Iran

    25. 26. HIV/AIDS cases repoted in China 1985 - 2002
    26. 27. Law Enforcement in China There are severe punishments for the manufacturing, trafficking and supply of illicit drugs, with the overall position of Chinese law enforcement being one of zero tolerance. According to Chinese law drug users must be rehabilitated and consequently the country has adopted compulsory measures as the main approach, with drug users being sent to compulsory rehabilitation centres (CRCs)
    27. 28. Public Health Approach Needle and syringe programs are not in operation nationally but as the seriousness of the HIV/AIDS epidemic has become clearer, so the acceptance of harm reduction measures has increased. There has been a shift from describing illicit drug users as &quot;illegal persons&quot; to &quot;illegal patients&quot;, demonstrating that there is an emerging understanding that illicit drug use is at least partly a health issue. From 2003, NEPs are being stablished as pilot projects.
    28. 29. Public Health Approach The main advance in the Harm Reduction approach is related to the expansion of Methadone avaiability. China decided in 2004 by their Ministry of Health to build one thousand (1000) methadone clinics in the next 5 years.
