Introduction

PKNI is a network of drug user organisations which was established in 2006 to address stigma, violence, discrimination and violations of human rights towards people who use drugs. PKNI has grown from a loose arrangement of support groups scattered across 11 provinces in the mid-2000s, to an independent, leading national network representing the common priorities of 25 self-organised drug user groups across 19 provinces in Indonesia. At the national level, PKNI operates through a national secretariat office based in Jakarta and is comprised of 8 full-time staff, 2 part-time staff, and 6 volunteers. The organisation is led by a National Coordinator elected by members through a national congress held every four years. PKNI has two layers of upper management, namely a Supervisory Board (three members) and an Executive Board (four members), that oversee the organisation’s strategic direction and program tracks, and hold the national secretariat accountable financially and programmatically. PKNI’s boards consist of individuals who have made and continue to make important contributions as members of the network, and have proof of leadership within their NGOs and community groups. Of the seven board members, three are living with HIV and all are either active or former drug users. PKNI has grown significantly as an organisation in the last three years, totaling an annual working budget of approximately $100,000. Since 2011, the organisation has doubled its funds and list of supporting organisations, enabling it to expand its membership to additional provinces. PKNI provides increased services in remote areas, and has engaged in more targeted and strategic advocacy.

  • Provided paralegal assistance to drug users by trained and qualified peers. Approximately 120 people who use drugs across eight provinces have been trained to provide paralegal assistance to their peers whose drug-related cases are presently before the courts. During the fourth month period between July and October 2013, the 36 cases in five provinces were supported by peer paralegals.
  • Collaborated with the National AIDS Commission and the Directorate-General of Prisons to monitoring the quality of harm reduction services across nine provinces from the community perspective in 2013. Approximately 30 people who use drugs within each province provided information on their experience of service quality. The results of the assessments led by PKNI are being used to inform improvements to service delivery.‬‬‬‬‬‬
  • Developed and implemented the first training module to increase awareness of HIV, viral hepatitis, and tuberculosis (TB) co-infection among the community. This module has been implemented among community leaders of people who use drugs across seven provinces, who are delivering the training locally.
