The European Harm Reduction Network (EuroHRN) has been recently formed by ten organisations with a shared interest in advocating for and sharing knowledge on harm reduction within Europe. It is made up of three sub-regional networks covering North, South and Eastern Europe and managed by a coordinator based at the International Harm Reduction Association in the UK.
- The North Europe Sub-Regional Network is led by Foundation De Regenboog Groep (the Netherlands) and Akzept (Germany).
- The South Europe Sub-Regional Network is led by APDES (Portugal).
- The Eastern Europe Sub-Regional Network is led by the Eurasian Harm Reduction Network (Lithuania).
The 'Association Française de Réduction des Risques (AFR)' will organise the final conference of the current EuroHRN period in autumn 2011 in Marseille.
EuroHRN currently examines existing information and materials and consult with experts in order to map the coverage of harm reduction organisations, policies, services and resources in Europe.
EuroHRN is coordinated by the International Harm Reduction Association and is advised by a Steering Group of ten organisations who manage the development of the project.
The network was officially launched during the 21st International Harm Reduction Conference in Liverpool, Great Britain, 25 – 29 April 2010.
