For this, the most effective is peer-to-peer work, it brings the greatest result in our activities; Based on our many years of experience, it is prudent to hire and involve people who use drugs in harm reduction projects, whether as professionals, outreach workers or volunteers.
The purpose of work on harm reduction for drug addicts is the prevention of the spread of infections, including HIV / AIDS, hepatitis and other sexually transmitted and blood-borne infections; reducing the risk of overdose and other drug-related problems; as well as mitigating the negative consequences of drug dependence, including poverty and crime, both for individuals and for local communities in general.
