The international drug conventions were created to ensure the “health and welfare of mankind”, yet drug policies around the world continue to focus on criminal justice and repression rather than on health responses. Governments across the world should provide harm reduction and treatment interventions to reduce the harms associated with drug use, and ensure adequate access to essential medicines.
Bonn et al. urge for a continuation of effective responses implemented during the pandemic, including emergency safe-supply prescribing and housing provision, and further efforts to address the harms of criminalisation and prohibition.
In this webinar, Transform Drug Policy Foundation introduces their proposals for the regulation of stimulants. In doing so, they will lay out a realistic alternative to the prohibition of stimulant drugs.
The aim of the Spring and Autumn ETWs remain the same: to unite partner organisations throughout Europe for one week to increase access to testing and promote awareness on the benefits of earlier hepatitis and HIV testing.
Correlation-EuroHRN hosts a series of seminars on subjects such as COVID-19's effects on harm reduction efforts for people who use drugs, different approaches to decriminalisation, and more ethical drug policies.
