In 2020, the Women and Harm Reduction International Network (WHRIN) and Frontline AIDS published the guide Advancing the sexual and reproductive health and rights of women who use drugs, which has been translated into Bahasa Indonesia, French and Portuguese. This manual has been designed for workshop facilitators to train community-based and peer-led harm reduction service providers to put this guide into practice.
To ensure community-based and peer-led organisations have ownership of this manual, a working group of partners from India, Kenya, Nepal and Nigeria contributed to the curriculum’s development at all stages. The headings, sub-topics and learning objectives have been discussed with and validated by members of this working group. Between July and October 2021, fortnightly meetings were held with the working group to ensure the training course is relevant and applicable. Working group members have also contributed to case studies, the design of workshop activities, and the key messages of each module.
