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.
INPUD provides a mechanism by which the voice of the drug using community is heard at an international level. We provide advocacy, education and support to organisations and individuals working in our community.
HIV, HCV and TB are decimating our community; is it imperative that INPUD plays an active role in ensuring our regional members have the most up to date health information available to them.
INPUD is already working with WHO and has a member representative on the WHO/TB committee to feed back information to educate our members who in turn can inform their groups.
INPUD members attended a three day workshop at the International Harm Reduction Conference in Liverpool 2010 and a further one day workshop is being planned
