Seeking Comments on "Greater Involvement" Manifest

Stijn (Belgium), Matt (USA) and Alexander (Russia)

Dear friends and colleagues,

As you may know, the Canadian HIV/AIDS Legal Network, with support from OSI’s International Harm Reduction Development Program and the International HIV/AIDS Alliance, is preparing two new editions of their report Nothing About Us Without Us: Greater, Meaningful Involvement of People Who Use Illegal Drugs. One new edition is specifically for the former Soviet Union, and one is more broadly international (the original report was primarily focused on Canada). Along with the report itself, it includes a Manifesto, the original version of which was written by people who use drugs from Canadian organizations.

A number of you participated in previous discussions for the international edition, for example at the consultation we organized in Warsaw during this year’s harm reduction conference, or in the discussion of part of the project that Ann Livingston and I moderated during the 2nd Users Congress. The international edition is now nearing completion, and we are especially interested in getting additional comments about the Manifesto. The latest copy is attached to this message.

We welcome any and all comments, suggestions or questions, and ask only that you respond to this address: idu-udi-int@aidslaw.caThis e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it not later than November 20, 2007.
