Support. Don’t Punish.

The war on drugs has failed us. We need drug policies that prioritise health and human rights, instead of criminalising drug users. In conjunction with International Day Against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking yesterday, Prof Dato' Dr Adeeba Kamarulzaman, Dean of the Faculty of Medicine, Universiti Malaya; Hariyati Jonet from Malaysian AIDS Council; and Samantha Chong, human rights lawyer join us to talk about the ‘Support. Don’t Punish’ global campaign.

Produced by: Tee Shiao Eek and Liew Jing Ru

Presented by: Meera Sivasothy
