and to help them to regain their equal status in society.
Our vision is that people who use drugs, sex workers, young people, people living with HIV and other threatened communities will be equal members of the society and will actively take part in the life and policy of the state. Help and support systems will be created within the framework of the communities to prevent crisis situations and to fulfill their members´ needs.
We believe each person is able to make decisions that lead towards positive change.
We believe each person has the right to access objective information and low threshold services.
We believe each person is an equal member of society. Human dignity and human rights cannot be taken away.
We believe each person is a unique being and has the right to self-determination, self-assertion and autonomous lifestyle.
We believe the communities have their own powers to solve problems.
