Virtual study visit: harm reduction in the Netherlands

Mainline is coordinating a virtual study tour for the harm reduction network for the Middle-East and North Africa region (MENAHRA). MENAHRA were determined to not have COVID-19 block their plans, and asked Mainline to provide a digital tour across Dutch harm reduction services.

Interactive and with depth

Over 30 staff members who work in the harm reduction field in Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco and Tunisia are joining the tour to learn as well as to exchange experiences and knowledge.

The group will gain in-depth understanding of Dutch drug policy and will visit drug consumption rooms and the Amsterdam drug user union. They will join Mainline’s fieldwork team and learn about heroin-assisted treatment, drugs prevention programmes and drug testing in the Netherlands. A mini-training on chemsex will be added to complete the programme. 


The study visit takes place in mid-June 2021 and is funded via the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria.
