AIDS United has released a new resource on the history and benefits of meaningfully involve of people who use drugs, as well as best practices to asses your organization and embody the principle of meaningful involvement of people who use drugs. Meaningful involvement of people who use drugs ensures the leadership and decision-making power of people with lived experience of drug use in the response to the intersecting crises of drug use, viral hepatitis, and HIV. Whether your organization has been doing this work for years or is just starting to think about it, this resource can help you to evaluate how you’re doing and what practices you’d like to implement in the future.
