On 19-21 April 2016, representatives from 193 United Nations (UN) member states will meet in New York to review, discuss and debate the achievements of the international drug control system under the banner of the UN General Assembly Special Session (UNGASS). Convened by the Commission on Narcotic Drugs (CND), UNGASS 2016 represents a critical platform for drug policy advocates to call for the end of an ineffective and costly drug war in favor of health, human rights, and human security while offering significant opportunities for civil society participation to influence the debate.

The present Policy Brief was developed by the Asian Network of People who Use Drugs (ANPUD) to stimulate and support the meaningful participation of its constituents – Asian people who use drugs – in the UNGASS 2016 process. Following a short overview of the UNGASS process, the Brief highlights common issues across the region that have been prioritized by ANPUD with specific recommendations.
