Film launch & live Q&A – Connecting with people who use drugs during COVID-19

Join us on Tuesday 23rd March from 16:00 – 17:00 AEDT for the premiere of the short film that goes behind-the-scenes of Kirketon Road Centre (KRC)’s innovative COVID-19 outreach program.

KRC is a walk-in, targeted, primary health care service in Sydney, Australia which has been operating since 1987. When COVID-19 hit, KRC knew they had to adapt quickly if they were going to be able to continue to support the communities they serve.

After the film, we will welcome experts from Australia, Iran, and South Africa to discuss connecting with people who use drugs during COVID-19.
