Abstract

People who inject drugs are at a high risk of contracting and transmitting disease. In Thailand, the Raks Thai Foundation provides health education and needle exchange programs for users to live a healthier life. Our project determined factors influencing drug users’ access to and participation in these programs. We proposed a set of recommendations and educational posters to promote behavior change leading to increased awareness and participation with the overall goal to reduce the spread of diseases.
