Lightway Society was formed in the Year 2001 with an aim to promote the needy and down trodden Sections of the society. Since its inception, the society has strived to enhance the status of Intravenous Drug Users (IDUs) also known as Key Population (KP) by addressing stigma and discrimination in the society. Supported by Nagaland State AIDs Control Society (NSACS) and funded by National AIDs Control Organization (NACO), the Organization started implementing the IDU Targeted Intervention project in August 2014 and over the years the Organization has enhanced its capability in many areas such as documentation, management (program and finance) and technical subjects. The organization is currently reaching out to 506 Injecting Drug Users in 23 villages and 4 towns. There have been positive shifts in terms of their injecting behaviors which can be seen through growing number of IDUs adopting safer behaviors or shifting to oral use. Regular feedbacks of the activities/programs have positively impacted the deliverance of quality service to the KPs. The society is now providing service to 506 Injecting Drug Users. Advocacy sensitization and awareness programs about HIV/AIDS, STI, IDU, TB, etc. are been conducted time to time at Block levels, tows and villages in the project area.
