INHSU Africa 2020 was INHSU’s first-ever regional meeting, bringing together local advocates, policy champions, researchers, and the community of people who use drugs.
The event highlighted best practices, contributed to enhancing drug user health, and focused on the elimination of HIV as well as hepatitis C.
Following the success of the regional meeting – which was held in South Africa – we have continued to partner with local policy champions to support their advocacy activities.
These activities include:
INHSU Africa Advocacy RoundTable (virtual), 1st July 2020
World Hepatitis Day Event South Africa (virtual), 28th July 2020
