In the build-up to the High Level Segment of the Commission on Narcotic Drugs (CND) in Vienna in March 2009, IHRA has launched two advocacy tools to inform government delegations and civil society about the global appeal of - and support for - the harm reduction approach. Firstly, IHRA and Human Rights Watch have launched a "Book of Authorities" to provide reference material on expert opinion and specific UN "agreed language" and statements on harm reduction. The second resource is a list of the countries and territories which currently support harm reduction in policy or practice - put together by IHRA and harm reduction networks from around the world. This table shows at a glance the extent to which harm reduction is a global approach. Please click here for further information. Please click here for further information.
