Ever since HIV/AIDS made its presence felt in India’s North East around 18 years ago, many harm reduction based interventions have been implemented to address drug use and HIV. The grounds gained in addressing “harms” related to drug use however seem to be slipping away with the emergence of Hepatitis C as a very common co-infection with HIV among injecting drug users.  As early as 1994 an ICMR study showed 98% of users in Churachandpur and 92% in Imphal were Hep C and HIV positive. Hep C is the next health crisis waiting to explode given its easy transmission mode. HIV positive people are indeed living with HIV due to anti-retro viral treatment but often they are dying of Hep C as a result of highly expensive and thus unaffordable treatment.  Yet, programs and policies in India remain silent on Hep C. Screened at the Film Festival, Goa and the Festival de Cine, Barcelona, 2008
