Zimbabwe Civil Liberties and Drug Network
Description: Our mission is
threefold. Firstly, the
ZCLDN would like to see the Zimbabwe Drug laws reformed in line with
international pronouncements in the promotion of human rights, scientific research,
public health and human security on people who use drugs. Secondly, the ZCLDN would like to intervene between
the state and people who use drugs for the promotion of humane drug policy that
will see the development of Zimbabwe. Lastly, ZCLDN would like to create stakeholder engagement involving civil
society, the media and state in debating issues that will bring a win - win
situation between people who use drugs, the society at large and the state.

Drug Policy Reform and Harm Reduction
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?
Drug Policy Reform
Advocacy and lobbying;
Training and Capacity Building
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.
