The "Outreach" Coalition has completed a research among representatives of key populations of people who use drugs (PUD), sex workers (SW) and men who have sex with men (MSM), aged 18 to 24 years in three regions of Russia.
The community-based participatory research was conducted in Moscow (key population of PUD), Rostov-on-Don (key population of SWs) and Novosibirsk (key population of MSM) as part of the project “Young, wild and... free?". The researchers themselves were representatives of key populations, affiliated as volunteers with nongovernmental organizations that are members of the "Outreach" Coalition: the Andrey Rylkov Foundation for Health Protection and Social Justice (Moscow), the Andrey Rylkov Foundation for short, the regional public organization "Humanitarian project"(Novosibirsk) and the regional public organization "ARK-Anti-AIDS" (Rostov-on-Don).
We would like to thank AFEW International (Netherlands) for their assistance in the implementation of this project.
