REActors

There are eight trained REActors, one-two persons per organization and country.

The REActor is an outreach worker, case manager, social worker of an NGO providing services to key groups. Some REActors are lawyers or paralegals, and cases that require more professional legal assistance may be referred to them. Information about violations is communicated to the REActors directly by victims during the receipt of various services (testing for HIV, hepatitis C, hepatitis B, syphilis; syringe exchange; condom distribution; medical services; PrEP; legal services, etc.). Also, REActors monitor closed community groups in social networks in order to reach victims of human rights violations.
