Katrin studied social work in Germany and moved to the Netherlands in 1994. Since then, she has worked in several organisations and projects targeting drug users and sex workers. Since 1996, Katrin works for The Rainbow Group – a low-threshold organisation targeting drug users, homeless people and people with mental health problems. In the beginning, she worked as an outreach and social worker for male sex workers and drug users. From 1997 to 2003, Katrin coordinated a European Network focusing on male sex work, financed by the European Commission. Since 2005, Katrin is one of the coordinators of Correlation – European Harm Reduction Network, with more than 250 members in all European countries. The network organises different European projects, activities, seminars, conferences and training events in the area of harm reduction, social inclusion, peer involvement and Hepatitis C among drug users. In 2011, Katrin graduated from the Netherlands School for Public and Occupational Health as a Master of Public Health (MPH).
