Harm Reduction & Drug Policy: Taking Drug Users Seriously

Booth Number:  803
Following the success of previous harm reduction Networking Zones at the International AIDS Conference is this year's Harm Reduction & Drug Policy Zone: “Taking Drug Users Seriously”. The zone is rooted in the belief that the participation of those who use drugs is integral to ending HIV. In partnership with Portland Hotel Society from Vancouver, the zone will feature a spectacular replica of a Safe Injection Facility. A needle exchange van from Family and Medical Counseling Services will represent harm reduction services in D.C. The zone will showcase video presentations from drug users around the world who are unable to attend this year’s conference due to irrational U.S. drug laws. The zone will also feature special events and entertainment in partnership with Harm Reduction International, HIPS, International Drug Policy Consortium, Hungarian Civil Liberties Union, Eurasian Harm Reduction Network, International Centre for Science in Drug Policy, International Doctors for Healthy Drug Policies and International Network of People Who Use Drugs.
