Call For Candidates From the Asian Pacific Region to participate in IHRA's Executive Program Committee for the 2009 IHRC in Thailand

DU-Activists at Beyond2008

Antwerp, July 15, 2008

Dear Friends, Fellow Drug User Activists,

I received a request from IHRA's Executive Director Gerry Stimson to propose 2 INPUD Activists from the Asian Pacific region to join the Executive Program Committee (EPC) of the 2009 International Harm Reduction Conference in Thailand.

The composition and tasks of the EPC as explained on IHRA's website:

Executive Program Committee - International Harm Reduction Association

The Executive Program Committee (EPC) is a professional body composed of distinguished professionals from the harm reduction field. Their role is to create the conference program by organizing sessions themselves or by creating sessions out of the abstracts that have been submitted on line.

The EPC members come from around the world and from numerous professional backgrounds (including large multi-lateral organizations, harm reduction networks, research institutes and organizations for people who use drugs). Their knowledge, experience and skills guarantee that the conference program is of the highest quality.

Call for candidates

I call for DU-Activists from the Asian Pacific region to be candidate for IHRA's 2009 EPC.

DU-Activists can apply by sending an email to Stijn@inpud.orgThis e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it . This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it
