Health Poverty Action is a nongovernmental organization based in the United Kingdom. They’ve been looking recently at drug policies in the context of sustainable development in order to, in their words “build a new approach to drugs that prioritizes, promotes, and protects health and well-being, helps address poverty and inequality, and contributes to achieving the [UN’s] Sustainable Development Goals.”

Health Poverty Action recently held a webinar series entitled “A World With Drugs: Legal Regulation Through A Development Lens.” On this edition of Century of Lies we hear a portion of the most recent webinar in that series, which was entitled “Community Participation and Legal Regulation.” Speakers include Ann Fordham, the executive director of the International Drug Policy Consortium, who facilitated the panel; Charan Sharma, a Program Manager with the Drug Use & Harm Reduction Alliance in India; and Emma Campbell, an activist with the Alliance for Choice in Northern Ireland.
