By joining INHSU, you are joining a global network of people committed to creating a world where people who use drugs have equitable access to the treatment and care they need to live healthier lives.

Our members are based across the world and come from all walks of life; researchers, practitioners, allied health professionals, advocates, policymakers – and at the heart of it all – community members who have lived experiences of using drugs.

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.
