International AIDS Conference Global Village

Harm Reduction & Drug Policy Zone

Taking Drug Users Seriously

July 22nd-27th, Washington, DC, USA

The Harm Reduction Coalition will be hosting the Harm Reduction & Drug Policy Zone at the International AIDS Conference in Washington, D.C. Located in the Global Village; our zone is FREE and open to the public.

What to Expect

In partnership with PHS Community Services Society from Vancouver, BC there will be a spectacular replica of a working Safe Injection Facility; harm reduction services from Washington, D.C. will be represented by the needle exchange outreach van from Family and Medical Counseling Services.  The zone will be rounded out by video presentations from around the world by people who use drugs who are unable to attend this year’s conference due to irrational U.S. drug laws. Special events and entertainments will occur in partnerships with Harm Reduction International, HIPS, International Drug Policy Consortium, Hungarian Civil Liberties Union, Eurasian Harm Reduction Network and the International Network of People Who Use Drugs.


Mark your calendars and join the Harm Reduction Coalition, the International Centre for Science in Drug Policy and International Doctors for Healthy Drug Policies on Monday July 23rd, 2012 from 18:15 to 19:30 for hors d’oeuvres, drinks and music.  RSVP at rugama@harmreduction.org
