The Global State of Harm Reduction 2020 is the most comprehensive independent analysis on harm reduction policy and practice around the world. This year we found that harm reduction implementation has worsened, after having stalled since 2014. Join our online launch to hear more about what we learnt. The event will feature Tlaleng Mofokeng, UN Special Rapporteur on the Right to Health, alongside harm reduction and human rights experts from around the world.
Harm Reduction International (HRI) released the first Global State of Harm Reduction in 2008, a report that mapped responses to drug-related HIV, viral hepatitis and tuberculosis around the world for the very first time. The data gathered for the report provided a critical baseline against which progress could be measured in terms of the international, regional and national recognition of harm reduction in policy and practice. We have continued this global tracking ever since.
