IFNC Academy on Harm Reduction as Transformative Practice

The purpose of this Academy is to work with community-based organizations who are planning or have taken steps to establish an overdose prevention or harm reduction program and want to learn more about harm reduction principles. Over the course of the seven month training, participants will work together to learn how to operationalize harm reduction practices in their communities. Sessions will be held, at most, twice per month between January and July 2021. This structure is intended to foster regional collaboration, with harm reduction experts providing insight on best practices and lessons learned from the field. Read the application packet here. Applications are due by Friday, November 13.
