HRI convened leaders of the major harm reduction funders to catalyse interest and engagement on funding for harm reduction, strengthening shared ambition within the global funding community.

This Leaders Convening represents the first time the leaders of major harm reduction funders have gathered to focus on the inadequate funding for the harm reduction response. 

The Leaders Convening follows on from years of dialogue on the significant matter of funding for harm reduction in low- and middle-income countries, and the global failure to reach the UNAIDS resource needs estimate of USD1.5 billion annually by 2020 for an effective HIV response among people who inject drugs in low-and-middle income countries.

The Leaders Convening coincides with the launch of HRI's latest analysis on funding for harm reduction in LMI countries: https://www.hri.global/failure-to-fund
