4th European Harm Reduction Conference
Harm Reduction is an acknowledged part of drug policy in almost all countries in Europe due to overwhelming evidence that it is an effective measure to protect people who use drugs from harm and unintended consequences of drug use. Harm reduction in a broader sense is applied with an holistic approach, taking into account the wellbeing of the individual, the social and health aspects of drug policy such as criminalization and stigmatisation on the one side and social inclusion on the other side.
The conference will present the latest harm reduction research results, innovative and next best-thing practices and discuss drug policy including the need to scale up harm reduction services.
Last but not least,the conference provides an appropriate platform to create a link between national and European developments in drug policies and harm reduction.
In 2018, the conference will be organised by the Correlation Network in cooperation with Romanian partners and different European Networks and partners, such as Infodrug Switzerland, the European Network of People Who Use Drugs, the Eurasian Harm Reduction Association and the European Joint Action HA-REACT.
