Watch Drugreporter’s new video, marking the launch of the Consensus Statement from the International Network of People Who Use Drugs. The Consensus Statement was launched in Kuala Lumpur in 2015, and focusses on human rights, health, and the law, in relation to people who use drugs. The Consensus Statement is informed by the perspective of those who are so catastrophically impacted by global prohibition and by the so-called ‘war on drugs’: people who use drugs themselves. The Consensus Statement stems from four regional consultations, conducted by the INPUD Secretariat in 2015 with representatives of 24 drug-user organisations from 28 countries. In the video, members of INPUD summarise the human rights of people who use drugs and INPUD’s Essential Demands.
