KCs & Community Action on Harm Reduction

The Community Action on Harm Reduction project involves people who use drugs in the design and delivery of services. The programme also focuses on developing community action and grass roots campaigns to advance the human rights of people who use drugs. There is a strong focus on building the local capacity of community based organisations and sharing knowledge about what works.

As part of the initial stages of the project, in Kenya a team of people working with people who use drugs have been trained to be Key Correspondents. Each is driven by a passion to be better equipped to tell the stories of people who use drugs, their families and the communities in which they live and the impact that harm reduction interventions are having in Kenya.

Read their stories below. For more information on the Community Action on Harm Reduction project visit www.cahrproject.org.
