This Toolkit was created to strengthen the work harm reduction
programs do with women who use drugs. It contains a series of
tools that can be used together, separately or in other creative ways.
Organizations who use this toolkit should already have a strong
understanding of what harm reduction is
and be implementing harm reduction programming.
The Introduction & How-To Guide provides information about:
• WHAI and how WHAI works
• How and why this Toolkit was created
• What is included in the Toolkit
• Language used throughout the Toolkit
• Useful links to resources about harm reduction
Overall, this Toolkit was written to reflect the experiences, voices and priorities of women who use drugs. The content reflects what women told our working group and aims to be accessible and useable in a range of creative ways. We hope you find it helpful!
