Like it predecessors the Global State of Harm Reduction 2016 continues to map the response to drug-related HIV, viral hepatitis and tuberculosis. It also integrates updated information on harm reduction services into each regional chapter, including on needle and syringe programmes (NSPs) and opioid substitution therapy (OST) provision; harm reduction services in prisons; access to antiretroviral therapy (ART) for people who inject drugs; overdose responses; policy developments; civil society developments; and information relating to funding for harm reduction. With changing patterns in drug use, the 2016 report also reflects the use of, and harm reduction response to, amphetamine type stimulants (ATS).
