The european Harm Reduction network, or euroHRn, was formed in 2009 by ten civil society organisations with a shared interest in advocating for and sharing knowledge on harm reduction within europe.

This report presents the findings of the EuroHRN civil society audit, an activity aimed at collating existing epidemiological and service coverage data and consulting with experts in order to map key issues for harm reduction in Europe. This includes coverage of harm reduction interventions, policies and civil society advocacy priorities.

A complementary questionnaire was disseminated to focal points in each EuroHRN member country to understand the barriers to accessing these services at the national and local levels.

This activity aims to provide a snapshot of the current state of harm reduction across the region, provide a baseline for EuroHRN and civil society in the region and act as a regional advocacy and planning tool.
