62nd Session of the CND - INPUD Statement

March 2019

INPUD's statement for the 62nd Session of the CND emphasises that the way forward must be defined by a commitment to the inalienable human rights and dignity of people who use drugs. This cannot be suspended in the pursuit of a “drug-free” world. Under the principle of common and shared responsibility, we remind member states of their human rights obligations under international law. Finally, in safe-guarding the future, the critical role of communities of people who use drugs should be formally acknowledged in order to ensure that no one is left behind.
