In cooperation with the Auto-Support des Usagers de Drogues (ASUD), Association Gaia and the European Network of People Who Use Drugs (EURONPUD), the Correlation Hepatitis C Initiative organised a seminar for community members, harm reduction workers, HCV researchers and activists engaged in HCV prevention, treatment and advocacy.
