NARDI, Henrique Caetano e RIGONI, Rafaela de Quadros. Marginality or citzenship? the discursive net that configures the work of outreach workers. Psicol. estud. [online]. 2005, vol.10, n.2, pp. 273-282. ISSN 1413-7372. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1413-73722005000200014.
Scientific literature review shows that Harm Reduction (HR) articles focus mainly the discussion about the implications of different drug users treatment models and the efficiency of HR with injection drug users. However, there are few studies about HR workers. In this context, the present article aims to discuss the work of outreachworkers, proposing an analysis of how the discursive formations about drugs and Aids, in contemporary society, influence the work and the subjectivity of the outreachworkers, as well as the possibilities of having "sustainable projects" as a way to include harm reduction practices in public health services.
