The project is developed by the French Research Institute INSERM and supported by Aides, France and the Correlation Network.
This manual is designed to be used in building skills of teams of peers, volunteers and professionals already experienced and working in the frame of harm reduction programmes and who wish to address the specific needs of counselling to improve injection techniques and other health outcomes such as reducing risk of infections. As such, the manual offers an ‘add-on’ to initial and other training, building on existing foundations, interventions and services. It is not designed to be a ‘stand alone’ manual. The intervention should be nested in a wider and preferably stable harm reduction programme.
The training and more Eurosider results will be presented at the Hep Community Summit. Project partners are INSERM, AIDES, C EHRN, Aras, GAT, Initiative for Health and Praksis.
