It is Mainline's mission to improve the health and rights of people who use drugs.

Mainline provides harm reduction services, training, consultancy and a lifestyle magazine. We work with partner organisations domestically and abroad through various projects. We have been dedicated to the principle of harm reduction, for 28 years.

Folders & brochures

The field workers of Mainline pick up signals on the street, make an inventory of problems faced by those who live there, and provide the knowledge they have gained in (Dutch-language) publications for drug users and professionals who work with drug users. We also offer a number of folders and brochures in English.
