About Community Involvement

The Eurasian Harm Reduction Association (EHRA) approach to work with people who use drugs (PWUD) is based on the recognition of principle of greater involvement of PWUD in policy and advocacy work as well as in programs and services that affect their lives.

In an effort to provide skills, knowledge and capacity building support to PWUD community, we are developing programs which help PWUD to become experts and take leadership in advocacy on national, regional and international levels for better policies and services which correspond to their needs.
