HRI is seeking an independent research consultant to design and implement a pilot study into the impact of COVID-19 upon harm reduction funding. The successful candidate will work in close collaboration with HRI and national/ regional civil society and community organisations in seven countries in Asia.
This research will provide valuable insights for national and regional advocacy and facilitate learning between countries on what has worked well and what has not. It will provide evidence to inform specific recommendations for donors and governments in relation to sustainable financing for harm reduction during the pandemic and in the period of recession predicted to follow. Findings will be published in a policy report in English, disseminated in Asia and internationally.
