Regional Report on Compulsory Treatment and Rehabilitation in East and Southeast Asia

Consisting of three booklets, this report documents progress and case examples pertaining to the transition from compulsory facilities for people who use drugs towards voluntary community-based treatment and complementary health, harm reduction and social support services in East and Southeast Asia.

This report is a compilation of data provided or published by countries in the region on their national situation relating to compulsory drug treatment and rehabilitation. It also serves as a mechanism for monitoring progress towards meeting commitments agreed by countries in 2015 in Manila to phase out compulsory treatment and rehabilitation and to scale up the implementation of voluntary community-based treatment and services.
