The network

INHSU’s diverse network comes from a wide variety of backgrounds including researchers, practitioners, policymakers, advocates, allied health, and people with lived experiences. 

Despite their different experiences and backgrounds, everyone in our network has one thing in common – an interest and dedication to improve the health of people who use drugs, and ensure this community has equitable access to evidence-based treatment and care. 

We believe the most powerful impact is achieved when researchers, clinicians, advocates, and communities of people who use drugs come together to share knowledge, learn from each other, and put those insights into action.

Our membership

In our 2019/2020 financial year our network included 45% Practitioner, 18% Nurse, 16% Researcher, 11% Community and 10% Student.

(a special interest group)

Our members are central to the workings of INHSU, and we proactively encourage them to help us shape the future of the organisation with suggestions and input on governance and new topic areas to explore.

Partner organisations 

As well as our members, we work closely with partner organisations globally to help ensure maximum impact for our projects. 

Join the INHSU network

Through membership, you can meet, learn from, and collaborate with peers globally. You can help shape policies and recommendations. You can access member-only content and research. But perhaps most importantly, you can support INHSU to continue to advocate for people who use drugs, and fund evidence-based projects that improve their health and wellbeing globally.

To make our network more inclusive – particularly for community-based members, people from low and middle-income countries, students, nurses, allied health professionals, and trainees – we have recently created a new membership fee structure.
