Health Care Delivery, Social Support, and Harm Reduction 

Health care around the world today is characterized by low standards and double standards. Those who are economically and socially marginalized frequently do not receive high quality health care or supportive services. AA&D is targeting this injustice through our infectious disease, social support, and harm reduction efforts. From the border between Mexico and US, to multiple partners along the Black sea coast, AA&D is advising and facilitating the design and rollout of comprehensive programs.

These materials will be shared widely, but will be used primarily by local organizations to assist these families as they build their new lives and navigate the resources that are available in the state.
