Stories from the field | The youth movement driving harm reduction in Nigeria

In this video, Adeolu Adebiyi talks about his involvement in a youth movement, promoting the introduction of harm reduction in Nigeria

In this final week we have the opportunity to hear two real-world experiences. After hearing from Sam about advocating and lobbying with locals and neighbours, in this video we will hear from Adeolu Adebiyi about how the youth played a pivotal role in the introduction of harm reduction in Nigeria.

We hope that this and the previous real-world examples will give you a sense that advocacy does not only happen behind doors in diplomatic spheres. In most contexts, implementing harm reduction comes from the necessity to lobby and advocate in order to maintain your activities.
