Short description:
-The Latin American Drug Policy Reform Network was founded during the Andean-Amazonian Forum (FAA) and the Regional Meeting of the Independent Global Commission (CMI) which brought together more than 200 scholars, peasants and activists representing organizations from five Latin American and three European countries.
-REFORMA is a coalition of organisations and persons from Latin America grounded in an anti-prohibitionist approach to legislative policies and a harm reduction approach to public health policies.
-Its mission is to fight for the protection/preservation of the human rights of peasants, indigenous people and drug users, reducing harm produced by erroneous drug policies and contributing to the planning and execution of drug policies that are more effective and tolerant in the region.
-Its activities are undertaken in the fields of health and legislation.
