Welcome to the International Network of Women Who Use Drugs (INWUD)

INWUD is a subsidiary group of The International Network of People who use Drugs (INPUD) - therefore all INWUD members are primarily members of INPUD.

Our terms of reference:

1) INWUD provides a women-only safe space (list-serve) where ideas, challenges and support can be shared.

2) INWUD promotes equity for women in all INPUD boards, working groups and co-optees.

3) INWUD reviews and has input into all INPUD documents to ensure women sensitivity prior to their publication or release.

4) INWUD engages and promotes women who use drugs as equal partners and contributors in all aspects of drugs theory and practice, including drug policy, drug law reform, and harm reduction development.

5) INWUD actively seeks to collaborate with relevant UN and other international groups and bodies to give greater 'voice' to issues affecting women who use drugs (providing the INWUD philosophy/agenda is respected)

6) INWUD acts as conduit by actively engaging with the views and experience of women who use drugs, then channelling into advocacy efforts that impact on policy and practice.

INWUD members are encouraged to moderate their own behaviour and their use of this list, and be aware of the List Rules to support its smooth running.
