Constanza Sanchez, ICEERS: It is my honor to moderate this side event. To start with a few reflections on this week, it seems we are navigating theory and practice – CND is a wonderful opportunity to share experiences from different geographies, experiences and approaches. Today, harm reductions been a very hot topic in the CoW. This event is an opportunity to discuss it as a policy, as an intervention, as an approach, and we have multiple aims today with this – reflect on how this term became controversial, and how it became redefined as a health policy and how its implementation has evolved ..read more
