Various drug users’ networks Sunday accepted clarification and apology tendered by Project Orchid on June 9 with regard to the confusion that arose out of their May 11 mail to partner NGOs reportedly suggesting “100% mandatory testing.”
Informing this in a joint press statement, the North East India Drug Users Forum (NEIDUF), Nagaland Users Network (NUN), Kohima Users’ Network (KUN) and Network of Nagaland People living with HIV (NNP+) stated that they have reviewed the apology issued by Project Orchid during a joint meeting Sunday.
The four organizations said that the house, with a view to “work together for betterment of our communities,” decided to accept Project Orchid’s apology on the issue of “100% mandatory testing” and also its apology on omission of NEIDUF and KUN in its previous clarification issued to the local media and e-forum.
The statement was jointly issued by NEIDUF president, Abou Mere; NUN secretary, Ruokozo Theyo; KUN president, Kevignuto Khamo and NNP+ secretary, Lanu Aier.
It may be mentioned that Project Orchid director, Dr. Langkham issued a letter to the networks on June 9 clarifying that a sentence in the Project’s May 11 mail, which triggered the controversy, was “wrongly worded” and conveyed an unintended meaning. The letter also retracted the same and apologized for the confusion it created.
