Welcome to Drugreporter!
Drugreporter is the drug policy website of the Rights Reporter Foundation. The website was created in 2004 to promote drug policy reform advocacy in the region. In 2007 we started our video advocacy program and our website has become an international hub for English and Russian language news articles, blogs and films about harm reduction and drug policy reform. Our film database contains hundreds of short films aiming at educating and mobilising people. We provide training for activists and professionals on how to make and use films for advocacy, as well as how to communicate more effectively. We are in the forefront of harm reduction and drug policy reform advocacy activities in Hungary and in Europe.
