​Project to increase access to harm reduction services for injecting drug users in Burundi.

Summary:

The Nyumviriza project aims to contribute to the development of a community harm reduction (RdR) response, i.e. to

aim for empowerment and capacity building through the active participation of drug users. Drug users must contribute

are victims. They will therefore be involved in the project by being involved from the planning phase, implementation,
