330+ NGOs warn changes in Dutch funding priorities will disrupt drug policy reform

The Netherlands has been a global leader for ensuring the health and human rights of people who use drugs. Recent funding decisions signify a withdrawal from this critical agenda. 

The country has contributed significant funding over the past decade for harm reduction and drug policy reform. But the government is now changing their strategy.

This letter, signed by 330 civil society and community networks from 95 countries across the globe, calls on the Dutch government to recommit to their brave and long-standing political and financial support for harm reduction and drug policy advocacy and to continue to build on their significant investment in this issue.
