Harm-reduction pioneer to resign

The founder of Korsang, a harm-reduction NGO that works with drug users, will resign from her post as technical adviser on April 1. Holly Bradford founded Korsang in 2004 and helped oversee the opening of a centre for intravenous drug users in Phnom Penh’s Chamkarmon district, where users were given clean needles by the NGO. Korsang’s licence to continue providing clean needles was not renewed in January this year. Bradford will return to the United States to write a book about her experiences. “I feel I have taken Korsang about as far as I can, and it is time to bring new energy and ideas to the project,” she said in a statement.
