IDUs Lighting candles in remembrance of the souls of their colleagues who died of HIV during UHRN’s WAD 2014

 Uganda Harm Reduction Network (UHRN) is a youth led drug user network established in 2008 to respond to the drug use crisis in Uganda. The network works to advocate for practical interventions aimed at supporting and addressing issues of People Who Use and Inject Drugs. The network also seeks to provide a national platform for health and policy programs that promote good practices and advocate for a supportive environment for the adoption, implementation and expansion of harm reduction programs for People Who Use and Inject Drugs (PWUIDs) in Uganda. Currently UHRN’s geographical focus includes the following regions and districts: Central Region, Eastern Region, Western Region, and  Northern Region. Uganda Harm Reduction Network through its programming is committed to raise awareness and promote effective access to quality prevention, treatment, care and support services for people who use drugs living with and affected by HIV, TB, Hepatitis and other related health issues and lobby and advocate for a national platform for better health and policy programmes that promote good practices and supportive environment for the expansion and implementation of harm reduction programmes for people who use drugs (PWUDs) in Uganda

What will you be investing in by giving to UHRN?

  • A shelter (safe space) where recovering Drug Users can live safely for three to four months;
  • Economic empowerment programmes which give the drug users skills and confidence to become financially more independent;
  •  Promotion of drug user’s Health, Human Rights and Economic Empowerment Programme;
  • Supporting UHRN’s Outreach, Care and Support Programme for drug users;

What will your annual return on this investment be?

  • 200 drug users living in safe accommodation, who also benefit from counselling, life- and job-skills training and psycho-educational workshops and go back to their communities strengthened and supported by their shared experiences;
  • continued growth of the number of services available from UHRN;
  • increased ability of UHRN staff to consult to other organisations wanting to start similar supportive drug user organizations, thus enabling more drug users to access essential services;
  • transparent and accountable reporting to donors;
  • Mention on the UHRN website of your contribution and support.

Volunteering

You can donate your time, as a volunteer at UHRN. Volunteers are valued contributors to the work of so many organisations these days.

At Uganda Harm Reduction Network (UHRN), volunteers work mostly with our outreach team and clients. They conduct field visits, sensitize and promote safer injecting practices, safer sex education, condom distribution, syringe exchange program, psychosocial support and counseling, health & human rights information sharing amongst drug users and sensitization of the communities on issues concerning drug users. This is done through our peer led mechanism.
