How can the issue of hygiene be approached with precarious audiences? In collaboration with RAPeL, Street Nurses is offering training on these issues for professionals in the psycho-medico-social sector on September 14 and 28, 2023 in Namur.

Why hygiene?

The hygiene approach is one of the powerful levers used by Street Nurses to support homeless people from the beginning to regain control of their mental and physical health and enable them to project themselves again into life and the future.
