Many women who use drugs suffer disproportionately from HIV, STI, HEP C, TB and even cancer, so often we are stigmatized on several different levels. This leads to stress and mental health problems for some of us drug users, but especially women. This in itself creates a painful cycle. Until we have found our collective voice we cant find the way to break this cycle.
