There are many sides to any story. Things are not always what they seem.

What if our drug policies, programs, and services can be more responsive, more impactful, more engaging, and support a greater number of people in more long-lasting and sustainable ways?

The Philippine Harm Reduction Summit is a 4-day interactive online experience that gathers Philippine and international experts from multiple disciplines to discuss drugs the way we’ve never done before. We put together a wide range of expertise and experience in one big summit to fit your needs wherever you’re coming from and whatever it is you’re doing. Topics range from:
