Blueprint: Harm Reduction Tools for MSM Who Use Crystal Meth

For the past year, Harm Reduction Coalition—in conjunction with project partners BEAM and The Counter Narrative Project have worked on developing “Blueprint,” a set of tools, including a report and risk-reduction guidelines aimed to better improve the relationship that providers have with Black and Latino clients who have sex with men and also use crystal methamphetamine.

These are not your typical public health risk reduction guidelines; it is a set of client-centered and harm reduction-informed tools to help providers better engage with Black and Latino gay and bisexual men who use crystal methamphetamine.

Highlights include:

The guidelines, as well as a 10-page report, have been housed in on a dedicated page on Harm Reduction Coalition’s website.
