Where the world is uniting for the empowerment of young girls and women, there is one group in particular that is left out – women who use drugs (WUD). Sadly it is true that we are not recognized, heeded and meaningfully involved even in the broader women’s movement.
ANPUD recognizes that the situation of women who use drugs (WUD) in the region is dire and needs urgent attention. To ensure such voices are represented within ANPUD and at the regional and international fora, the call for self-nomination for the women representative to the ANPUD Executive Board has been made. The deadline to submit the application is May 15, 2017 and women members are encouraged to contact the ANPUD secretariat before May 8, 2017 to clarify any queries they may have regarding the application process.
