Thai drug users talk about harm reduction practices

  • Sharebar

Two Thai drug users talk about where harm reduction efforts are at in Thailand. They say that current programs tend to be too fragmented and focus on telling user what they should and shouldn't do instead of listening to the experiences and needs of the users themselves. They also say that at this stage there is not much in the way of collective activism to promote harm reduction, and it's difficult to interface with goverment and other agencies. The cycle of being arrested and put into jail and programs has the effect of further isolating users from communities.
