This page contains guidance documents, government advisories, and tools for people who use drugs and stakeholders likely to engage with people who use drugs.

We are excited to share our newest toolkit, COVID-19 Resources for People Who Use Drugs and Other Vulnerable Communities. The toolkit, created by Higher Ground Harm Reduction, Reynolds Health Strategies and global health organization Vital Strategies, provides informative fact sheets, tips and guidance for people who use drugs, engage in sex work, those who are unhoused, and the stakeholders who work with these communities. You may download the full toolkit here or directly download the information you need below.
