Mainline's mission is to promote health and fulfill the human rights of people who use drugs:
without a primary focus on the reduction of drug use and with respect for the individual drug user's freedom of choice and capabilities.
All of Mainline’s activities are carried out in the interests of harm reduction.
Harm reduction offers people the chance to control their use of drugs and take back their own lives within realistic boundaries.
Harm reduction thus restores human dignity and increases quality of life for people who use drugs.
The experiences and motivations of people who use drugs and the contexts in which drug use takes place constitute the point of departure for Mainline’s actions. Furthermore, Mainline works on the basis of the following norms and values:
• Authentic - creative and free-thinking
• Pragmatic - we get to work

Close to the field
Mainline’s people are often outdoors, which means: close to the field. Meet the people behind the stories from from Nepal, Georgia, Kenya and South Africa. Ride with us and get a peek behind the scenes.
Our International Team supports local fieldwork-oriented organisations with the primary objective of raising awareness of harm reduction. If required, the support can take the form of a motorbike, as was the case in Kenya.
Our National Team visits prisons, drop-in centres and consumption rooms, conducts fieldwork online or knocks on people’s doors.
Effective fieldwork is impossible without back-office support. Our budgeting, planning and record keeping is managed by a team of four. Meet the people behind the stories.
