Campaign: No te alucines, entérate
The objectives of this funding scheme include:
- Inform young people what the Mexican drug policy entails and provide objective information on the subject, in particular in relation to sexuality, HIV and human rights;
- Generate discussion regarding drug policy and what harm reduction means in Mexico, in particular between young people;
- Promote harm reduction programmes and the proposals that emerge from the discussion generated;
- Observe and follow up on federal attention centres "Centros Nueva Vida", and
- Study the relationship between HIV and non injecting drug use among youth in particular.
The outcome of the project will be a final youth recommendation paper for drug policy in Spanish and English that explains the result of the project debates—what harm reduction approaches should be used with young people in Mexico and what the youth experience has been with the new federal treatment centers called "Centros Nueva Vida". This document will utilize a formal yet amicable language for young people and thus would serve two parallel purposes: act as an advocacy guide for young people interested in debating drug policy and propose a series of starting points and policy recommendations through which to build a more comprehensive drug policy that respects human rights.
