Photo gallery: Support Don't Punish

These photos tell stories of the lives of people who use drugs in Myanmar. Criminalised and discriminated against, they are demanding access to harm reduction and health services, and protection of their human rights.

In Myanmar, the Alliance and PhotoVoice joined forces to work with communities of sex workers, lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people (LGBT), people who use drugs and adolescent girls and young women to enable them to confront stigma and discrimination that prevents them from accessing HIV and sexual and reproductive health services.

The project provided photography training for the groups and then held an exhibition of their photos. All participants were from community-based organisations involved in the Partnership to Inspire, Transform and Connect the HIV Response (PITCH) project, which strengthens their capacity to advocate for equal access to HIV and sexual and reproductive health services.
