Reducing Stigma and Improving Our Work with People Who Use Drugs
In this webinar hosted by NCSD and NASTAD's Drug User Health Team, learn more about stigma and cultural competency around drug use and people who use drugs (PWUDs).
June 8, 2022
This session aims to increase participants’ knowledge of stigma and cultural competency around both drug use and people who use drugs (PWUDs). Presenters from NASTAD’s Drug User Health team, the Academy of Perinatal Harm Reduction, and a current DIS discuss how drug-related stigma impacts health and access to care, as well as ways to dismantle stigma at the individual and organizational levels, including through the use of person-first language and applying a harm reduction lens.
