At the 19th International Harm Reduction Conference in Barcelona in 2008, a partnership between AHRN and CDC Taiwan was formed to showcase the Taiwanese experience with implementing and scaling up harm reduction services and policies. Indeed, Taiwan represents a unique space in Asia for harm reduction service delivery, both because of the impact of those services on HIV transmission and on crime rates, but also because of the political leadership from the highest levels of government. With the hope of sharing with key constituents and colleagues in the region an example of effective harm reduction, AHRN and CDC collaborated to produce a short film. The final product was launched at a special satellite session at the 20th International Harm Reduction Conference in Bangkok in April 2009 and is available here, together with more information about the satellite event and Taiwan’s harm reduction programme.
