“Support. Don’t Punish” Global Day of Action: towards a supportive drug policy system

Support. Don’t Punish is a global grassroots initiative in support of harm reduction and drug policies that prioritise public health and human rights. June 26 marks the global day of action where drug law reform activists around the work seek to change the narrative around drug policies and the rights of people who use drugs.

But what are enablers and barriers of a supportive drug policy system, and what role does the policy and health sector have in ensuring peer-based drug user organisations can reach their full potential?  The W3 Project considers this and other issues in a new article published in the International Journal of Drug Policy.

Replacing “believing” with evidence: A first look at the impact of W3

Over the past two years, peer-led and community-based organisations across Australia have been busy piloting the W3 Framework and tools at programmatic and organisational levels, and in some cases, at system-level and in their relationships with funders.

This extended period of piloting and implementation signalled the need for an interim analysis on how organisations are using the W3 Framework and what impact this is having in their organisation.

The W3 Project Team is excited to release the What Works and Why (W3) Project: Impact Analysis which explores the way that peer-led and community-based organisations are using and adapting the W3 Framework.
