“Support Don’t Punish”, marked annually on June 26, is the most important campaign in our fight against stigma and repression. Launched in 2013, the “Support. Don’t Punish” is a global community initiative to support the inclusion of harm reduction strategies and human rights protection in drug policies. Through various actions in more than 90 countries in 2020, activists committed to harm reduction and human rights protection campaigned against discrimination and stigmatization.

People who use drugs must be supported and not punished or marginalized. Soutenir. Pas Pinir.
