APDES – more specifically, GIRUGaia – is one of the founding members of the R3 – “Riscos Reduzidos em Rede” – group. This is a national network composed of drug users, sex workers, organisations/projects, technical staff and experts in the harm reduction area.
The goals of this project are: sharing of good practices, political/strategic action for the defense of the intervention principles of this type of policies, production of knowledge regarding the phenomena studied by the teams and contribution to the development of harm reduction in Portugal.
In 2007, the network organised the First National Harm Reduction Meeting; the second edition occurred in 2010 and the third in 2013.
