Dr. Chris Ford, head of the International Doctors for Healthy Drug Policy speaks about the need to end the war on drugs at AIDS 2012.
IDHDP's aim is to increase the participation of medical doctors in drug policy reform. Drug policies affect the health of us all, but especially people who use drugs and those who are living with HIV and chronic pain. There is a gap between evidence-based clinical practice and drug policy in many countries and IDHDP aims to provide the voice of doctors to advocate for changes in harmful drug policies and promote harm reduction and healthy drug policies based on evidence, human rights and compassion.
