ZIMBABWE CIVIL LIBERTIES AND
Advocating for the effective strategies for addressing problems
associated with drug use in Zimbabwe and Southern Africa
Zimbabwe Civil Liberties and Drug Network [ZCLDN], established in 2011, is a registered national initiative working in Zimbabwe with the mission to advocate for the effective strategies for addressing problems associated with drug use in Zimbabwe and Southern Africa. The organization works with the mission to promote and develop human drug policies that are based on tolerance, promotion of health, human rights, and dignity. It is a knowledge-based center of expertise on harm reduction and addiction. It works to establish workable policies that are grounded in science, public health, and human rights to help minimize the harms associated with drug use.
We provide numerous services to support the daily work of policy makers and professionals in the mental health and addiction fields for their clients as well as for the general public. We make available a full range of information obtained through research on mental illness, addiction, recreational drugs and alcohol. We also advice government on workable policies on drug use. ZCLDN will expose and challenge stigma, discrimination, and the criminalization of people who use drugs and its impact on the drug-using community’s health and rights. ZCLDN will achieve this through processes of empowerment and advocacy at the international levels, while supporting empowerment and advocacy at community, national and regional levels.
