The 2015 International Harm Reduction Conference will be held from 18th – 21st of October in Kuala Lumpur.  Harm Reduction International is pleased to stage this 24th conference in partnership with the Malaysian AIDS Council, and we look forward to building together an inclusive and engaging forum to connect the global harm reduction community.

First held in Liverpool 25 years ago, the HRI conferences have become the major international events for the harm reduction movement, and have been staged in major cities across the globe. In 2015, the conference returns to Asia for the first time since our 2009 event in Bangkok, and we expect to host up to 1,000 delegates from 80 countries.  As in past years, we look forward to a high energy and high visibility event, presenting information and networking opportunities that will help accelerate change and improve policies in the region and around the world.

This year’s conference theme is ‘Call for Leadership’ and reflects the urgent need to address critical issues faced by the harm reduction response.

With delegates from over 70 nations set to take part in this 4 day conference,  the programme reflects not only the truly global nature of movement but also addresses key international issues.
Carefully selected from one of the highest levels of submissions, done via a global call for papers, our international Programme Committee is pleased to confirm the programme for HR 2015.

Making a new departure, the agenda will encompass, high profile main plenaries, research, panel discussions dialogue space sessions, workshops and films as a basis for further dialogue.

(Kindly note that this programme may be subject to minor amendment or curtailment)
