Event Date:

This webinar is the first in a two-part series to explore Indigenous-centred and reconciliatory harm reduction approaches. This first webinar will provide an overview of:

  • what these approaches look like

We will spotlight examples of innovative, Indigenous-led programs across the country that are using Indigenous-centred approaches to harm reduction, HIV and hepatitis C.
