Policy PaperAll European and international referent organizations and bodies strongly support harm reduction as an efficient, evidence based approach to prevention of ineffective diseases transmition and treatment of persons who use drugs. Harm reduction approach has been supported by the “Strategy of Montenegro for prevention of drug abuse 2013 – 2020”, but there is no unique national doctrine, i.e bylaws that regulates this particular area. Although there are the most important harm reduction services set in place, which proved their worth and necessity on multiple occasions, ending of a nine year long donation program of the Global Fund for Fight against AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria in July 2015, brought the sustainability of certain services into question and the same are facing closure. This is especially related to service functioning within the NGO sector, without which the harm reduction approach in a certain country cannot be neither complete nor efficient, daily centers i.e. drop in centers for people who inject drugs and outreach work with most at risk populations in respect to HIV, Hepatitis C and B. In order to make services mentioned maintainable and developed according to growing needs, it is necessary to permanently secure their functioning and sustainability.

Drug users’ access to adequate treatment must not be a privilege, but a right coming from the fundamental right to health, as well as an obligation of every responsible system. Likewise, the possibility of access to programs and measures of decreasing drug related harm represents the right of every individual, which must be recognized as such.

General goal of the attached document is to support the creators of the policy in Montenegro in planning adequate and evidence based, rationally conceived responses of the public health and civil sector to decreasing drug related harm, i.e. according to generally accepted principles and recommendations of relevant international bodies and organizations with national strategic orientation. This document provides guidelines and counseling to decision and policy makers, based on the insight into the international and national situation, experience and practice, science based research and conclusions of perennial debates on the underlying subject. Furthermore, this document gives a starting impulse and necessary framework for a productive dialogue between decision makers and civil society on general policy on drugs as well as dialogue on the role of reduction of drug related harm, based on experience and existing practical evidence rather than ideological positions.
