CASO (Cosumidores Associados Sobrevivem Organizados) / Portugal

‘Plenty of plans for a young organsiation’


“At the moment there are 5 persons actively involved in CASO’s work. Although CASO aims to be a national Association but at the moment we mainly work in the North of Portugal and the city that we know best is Porto. Currently all of us do this work voluntarily. Two of us also work as peer educators in harm reduction teams,

CASO’s beginning was inspired by the visit from a Dutch drug user activist, Theo Van Dam to Portugal in 2007, organized by APDES, the local harm reduction organisation.
