July 25, 2023 12:00 до 13:30 (EEST, UTC +3), the webinar “Introducing harm reduction services for people who use drugs recreationally in EECA and the Balkans ” will be held.
Recreational drug use is on the rise, but at the same time young people who engage in it are not properly targeted by harm reduction services and don’t receive the necessary support, information and commodities they need to prevent them from turning to problematic use and all the relevant consequences.
On this webinar we’ll share international experience on planning and implementing harm reduction programs specifically for this target population, as well as present the guide that we are working on in this regard.
This webinar will be useful for program managers, advocates, policy makers and communities from across the region to help them inform their decisions and actions.
