The International Network of People who Use Drugs (INPUD) is a movement of people who use drugs (current and former) who support the Vancouver Declaration. The Vancouver Declaration sets out our demand that the human rights of people who use drugs should be respected and for harm reduction measures to be put in place to protect individual and public health.
INPUD is a global network that seeks to represent people who use drugs in international agencies such as the United Nations and with those undertaking international development work. We believe that people who use drugs should be meaningfully represented in decision-making processes that affect our lives.
INPUD is committed to demonstrating at country level how people who use drugs can constructively contribute to the development and delivery of services for our community. We believe that we have a unique insight that can help money be spent wisely thus delivering better results for individuals and the wider community.
We are asking the international community to stop always framing us as the problem and instead to recognise that we are part of the solution when is comes to addressing problems associated with drugs and drug policy around the world.
