Abstract
Community mobilization has increasingly become a key strategy and continues to be a proven success to HIV prevention in the realm of sex workers, men having sex with men and transgenders who by a presence of intrinsic factors have enormous benefits in terms of legal recognition, protection, health and human rights by being mobilized as a community. Injecting Drug Users(IDU) are yet to exhibit the same levels of enthusiasm and success in the mobilization approach of thel HIV intervention program. This study attempts to review the feasibility of mobilizing the IDU community and assess the contextual and structural factors that act as facilitators or barriers to which the community could be mobilized in the high prevalence districts for HIV in North East India .This study is a result of a qualitative thematic analysis of data collected through in depth interviews and focus group discussions
