The 2019 update to Harm Reduction International’s flagship publication, the Global State of Harm Reduction, includes updates to some of the key data in the report, including the opening of new drug consumption rooms, availability of needle and syringe programs, and references to harm reduction in national policy documents, among many other things. 

The Global State of Harm Reduction is a biennial report from Harm Reduction International. First published in 2008, it involves a coordinated effort across practitioners, academics, advocates and activists to map global data and responses to drug-related harms. 

It is the only report to provide an independent analysis of the state of harm reduction in the world and has become the go-to source on global harm reduction developments for researchers and advocates in our sector and beyond.

In November 2019, the Public Health and Social Policy team at Harm Reduction International worked to provide an update one year on from the publication of the Global State of Harm Reduction 2018.
