4th International Symposium on Hepatitis Care in Substance Users
Sione Crawford has worked in the NSW and ACT drug user organisations for over 12 years in a number of roles including peer education, community development, policy and advocacy and organisational and programmatic management, with a focus on hepatitis C prevention and treatment.
He considers his chequered past, of which he is extremely proud, to have been invaluable to him and believes that people who inject drugs have much to offer service providers and policy makers.
Sione is committed to harm reduction, his first-hand experience of harm reduction in action has kept him safe on more than a few occasions and he is a champion for striving to ensure that people who use and inject drugs are treated with dignity and respect.
Sione is particularly interested in working to effect structural change at the policy level, while involving those with current lived experience. He is also interested in how the knowledge and our understanding of injecting drug us and drug treatment is constructed in society and wonders who it really benefits.
