A meth track record in Indonesia

By the end of the first phase of the Bridging the Gaps Programme in 2015, front line data confirmed that the number of people who inject drugs in Indonesia decreased. However, the use of methamphetamine was on the rise.

Harm reduction services, however, still focused heavily on needle and syringe programmes and methadone treatment for people who use heroin. Specific interventions in support of people who use stimulant drugs were lacking. Mainline decided to address the changing drug realities.


Together with the AIDS Research Center at Atma Jaya Catholic University, Karisma Foundation in Jakarta and PKNM in Makassar, Mainline initiated various studies and piloted service delivery for people who use shabu. The Indonesian approach is captured in a concise track record.
