    Communications Assistant

    Paola Rodríguez is the part-time Communications Assistant at Harm Reduction International (HRI).

    Paola has previously worked for Partners In Health Mexico, where she led a communications team. She currently collaborates with Instituto RIA, a Mexican NGO which works to change drug policies in the country from a harm reduction, social justice and human rights perspective, and works with communities who engage with substances.

    Paola is passionate about changing drug policies in her home country of Mexico and internationally. She is interested in implementing harm reduction models and drug testing programmes, and changing narratives around people who use substances. She believes that it is possible to reimagine the ways society looks at substances and at people who use them. She believes in bringing social justice, gender equality and decolonisation to her daily work.

    Paola is a multidisciplinary designer from the Fine Arts Institute (Mexico), and holds a Master’s degree in development practice from Regis University (USA).
