Less than human: how can we increase support for evidence based policy for people who use drugs

Location: Liverpool, United Kingdom

People who use drugs (PWUD) such as heroin and crack cocaine are some of the most stigmatised groups in society, and are subject to more negative public attitudes and discrimination than other groups who are labelled by their experiences and conditions such as mental ill health, smoking, or obesity. Public stigma is associated with reduced health and social care uptake, poorer quality of care and outcomes, and reduced public support for supportive policies and services. As the UK is currently experiencing record levels of drug related deaths it is important to address stigma.
