Client / Correlation Network

Correlation – European network on Social Inclusion and Health, was established in 2004 in Amsterdam (the Netherlands) as a European civil society network and centre of expertise in the field of drug use, harm reduction and social inclusion. Since then, we have developed into a network of practice, research and policy coming together. Our activities connect harm reduction services, grassroots organizations, community-based services, research institutes, and health facilities from all over Europe. As a network, we cooperate with partners and policy makers on local, national and European levels.The network is hosted by De Regenboog Groep – a low-threshold service provider in Amsterdam that provides harm reduction services to drug users and other related target groups. In 2018, we changed our name to Correlation – European Harm Reduction Network (in short: Correlation Network).


Hepatitis B and Hepatitis C Testing can be the first step to accessing healthcare, treatment and support. Stigmatisation, lack of knowledge and access to services are barriers to testing for many vulnerable and marginalised groups, such as people who use drugs, sex workers and man having sex with man. European HIV-Hepatitis Testing Week took place from 17-24 November 2017. It is in its fifth year and the third time hepatitis testing has been included. We produced this animation for The Correlation Network to be launched in the Testing Week 2017 to communicate the importance of testing and address the obstacles and solutions.
