Advocates Welcome US Policy Shift on Injection Drug Users

The Christian Science Monitor recently examined how some advocates and others who work with injection drug users worldwide are welcoming a shift in U.S. policy toward IDUs and harm reduction. Gerry Stimson, executive director of the International Harm Reduction Association, said that the U.S. "has been a big block on harm reduction at the international political level," but that is "beginning to change, and it's changed quite suddenly." According to the Monitor, some advocates are calling on the U.S. to support programs aimed at IDUs in developing countries.
