Alexandra de Kiewit

Board Member, Quebec Region

Alexandra de Kiewit has been involved in community work since 2010. Her role as an outreach worker at the magazine L’Injecteur has allowed her to pursue one of her passions: the inclusion of people who use drugs and sex workers into health promotion.

Being an HIV-positive woman and a person who uses drugs, she wholeheartedly adheres to harm reduction principles that she advocates in the work that she does. After working for five years at Association Québécoise pour la promotion de la santé des personnes utilisatrices de drogues (AQPSUD), she now works as a Liaison Officer for Stella. She has also been working at Site fixe at Cactus Montréal for more than five years. She helped cofound Canadian Association of People Who Use Drugs (CAPUD), where she served on the board.

Alexandra has participated in numerous publications, one being Peerology: a guide by and for people who use drugs, distributed by CATIE. She tries to participate in as many conferences as possible, as she is thirsty for knowledge.
