Ana Liffey Drug Project celebrated its 40th anniversary on 8th December, 2022 with the day-long ‘We Are Innovative’ conference in Dublin’s Radisson Blu Royal Hotel. Among the circa 140 participants  were the Minister for Public Expenditure, National Development Plan Delivery and Reform, Paschal Donohoe TD, who delivered the welcoming address; members of Ana Liffey’s Dublin and Mid-West Region teams; colleagues from the Department of Health, Health Service Executive and An Garda Síochána; representatives from the Scottish Drugs Forum, CityWide, EuroNPUD, UISCE and other ally NGOs; academics working in the field of drug  research from Ulster University and the University of Limerick; drug reform advocates; peer workers and clients from both Dublin and the Mid-West whose contributions were key to the success of the conference.

The four highly topical panel titles were Health-led approaches to people who use drugs; Don’t be lucky, be safe – preventing fatal overdose; We are innovative in our delivery of services; and Nothing about us without us – the meaningful participation of people who use drugs.
