Harm Reduction is effective and humane!
Let's bring back the conversation to healing, not killing.
Since President Rodrigo Duterte assumed office in 2016, his words and deeds have mainstreamed the narrative of drug abuse and the drug trade in the Filipino public imagination. This became his justification for the Philippine National Police (PNP) to use whatever means and force necessary to put and end to the so-called Drug Problem which targets mostly the poor.
According to a Human Rights Watch report, the extrajudicial killings (EJKs) increased by more than 50% in the early months of the pandemic. Our lives, livelihoods, and lifestyles continue to be chipped away even with the continued health and economic crises.
To achiever real healing as a nation, we need systemic change focused on public health, social, and legal impacts. Harm Reduction follows a human Rights-based approach to create positive change for people who use drugs (PWUD) and society at large.
