Harm Reduction International is urging governments and UN agencies attending the upcoming intersessional meetings at CND, called to discuss the implementation of the UNGASS on Drugs outcome document, to push for targets which will turn the outcomes into real progress on harm reduction and the human rights of people who use drugs.

Our short briefing "Now Time For Progress: Harm reduction from UNGASS to 2019" highlights the key commitments to harm reduction and human rights in this year's UNGASS Outcomes Document and Political Declaration on HIV and AIDS, and suggests progress targets relating to each of these. 

It also recommends that the next Political Declaration on Drugs, to be agreed in 2019, takes the 2016 UNGASS outcome document chapters as its starting point, in place of the now outdated 2009 Political Declaration.  Find out more here.
