Since 1990 Nai Zindagi has been working with disfranchised groups of people affected by the use of drugs and associated harms to help them move from margins of society to center stage. Often people affected by poverty, social injustice, criminalization and stigma use drugs to cope with the harsh realities of life they are confronted with every day. Increasingly larger numbers of people now inject drugs and share syringes/needles resulting in sporadic epidemics of HIV/AIDS in different cities of the country. We believe in reaching out to the affected and often hidden communities and engaging them actively in developing strategies and programs that best meet their needs and are appropriate to their environment. We would encourage you to explore our web site to know more about the nature of our work and how you can help us reach out and support more people.
