2021 Parliamentary Symposium Through the Maze: On the road to health

In Aotearoa the government and sector are committed to a ‘health-based’ approach to drugs, and so it is an honour to be hosted by Health Minister Andrew Little. This year, in the context of a rapid global shift away from the so-called ‘war on drugs’, our symposium will assess how we are doing and ask what we need to truly shift to a health-based approach. The programme aims to stretch our understanding of, and commitment to, building a ‘health-based approach to drugs’. Our programme has been devised to draw on international experience, the past, and promising domestic examples.
