EuroNPUD operates to the same principles as the International Network of People who Use Drugs (INPUD) reflecting our shared vision and aligned strategic approach.

The members of EuroNPUD agreed our principles as the first step when negotiating our first strategy.  EuroNPUD’s principles provide an ethical foundation for EuroNPUD’s network strategy, fundraising approach, governance standards, and project work. 

EuroNPUD decided to adopt the same principles as our global network INPUD ensuring that we work to common principles at the European and global levels.
