On the A-gender: Community Monitoring Tool for Gender-responsive Harm Reduction Services for Women Who Use Drugs. INPUD. (2020)

immage

The On the A-Gender: Community Monitoring Tool for Gender-Responsive Harm Reduction Services for Women who use Drugs aims to be a resource for community advocates to begin documenting, evidencing, and addressing this state of play.

The tool acknowledges the diversity and intersectionality of women who use drugs — including sex workers, lesbian and transwomen.
