At the #VH2021 with Esha Leydon from @quihn and what a insightful presentation she outlined on, Patient perspectives on testing methods. #healthpromotion #harmreduction #2030accord

Esha Leyden from #QuIHN with a great account of lived experience, and what a difference peer support and harm reduction can play in the lives of people. #HarmReduction #VH2021
