Drug Policy Reform and Harm Reduction
Established in 2011, the ZIMBABWE CIVIL LIBERTIES AND DRUG NETWORK (ZIMBABWE CIVIL LIBERTIES AND DRUG NETWORK) is a national partnership of non-governmental organisations working together to promote drug policy reform and harm reduction in Zimbabwe through capacity building and advocacy. It is constituted in the form of a trust and all partner organisations are members of the trust. What do we do? Ø Drug Policy Reform Ø Advocacy and lobbying; Ø Training and Capacity Building Ø Provision of Harm Reduction Services Central to ZIMBABWE CIVIL LIBERTIES AND DRUG NETWORK?s work is the recognition that the protection of human rights remains critical to a successful response to drug policy reform and harm reduction. Drug use stigma and discrimination remain major obstacles to meeting the target of universal access prevention, care and treatment to people who use and inject drugs. Protection of human rights, both of those vulnerable to HIV infection and those already infected, is not only a right, but also produces positive public health results against HIV, TB and Hepatitis C.
