This report provides a region-by-region update of developments in harm reduction, in addition to exploring several issues which are key to the response to drug-related harms worldwide. These issues include increasing access to harm reduction in prisons and other places of detention; reaching people who use drugs with diagnosis, treatment and care for viral hepatitis and tuberculosis; preventing overdose-related mortality among people who use drugs; preventing and treating injecting-related bacterial infections; expanding the response to harms related to amphetamine use; and addressing the current shortage of funds for harm reduction worldwide.
