For the first time in Mauritius, two organizations, CUT (Collectif Urgence Toxida) and AILES (Aides, Infos, Liberté, Espoir, Solidarité) will mark the international overdose awareness day.
From Saturday August 29, an awareness campaign offering 3 videos will be broadcast on the social networks of CUT. A testimonial video from people directly affected by overdose, an awareness video with a simulation and a video with the activists who will pay tribute to the people who have died of overdose.
On Monday August 31 a workshop will take place at AILES, an overdose awareness day and training on risk reduction and first aid which will be provided for the attention of relevant NGOs and key populations.
At the beginning of September, a position paper will also be sent to the various ministries and the Prime Minister’s office to sensitize leaders to this problematic.
