What others say about ANPUD
In a region where people who use drugs face stigma, discrimination, punishment and human rights violations to serious extremes, the voice of ANPUD is critically important in efforts to humanize any discussion about drug policy.
I have witnessed the evolution of ANPUD since 2013. Despite some hiccups in the beginning, ANPUD has consistently rose and progressed as the competent regional network of people who use drugs in Asia. The legal registration status, increased resources, dedicated secretariat members and strengthened country presence are few palpable evidences.
