Harm Reduction 2013 - Our Conference Video

The Drugreporter's video report from the international harm reduction conference - remorseful politicians, skeptical researchers and activists without borders

The Drugreporter video advocacy team attended the international harm reduction conference in Vilnius - we filmed key sessions and interviewed several people about how they see state of the harm reduction movement in 2013. Learn how harm reduction programs are fighting for survival in a time of financial austerity, what does the former president of Poland and Switzerland think about the war on drugs and why harm reduction should move beyond public health.
