People who use drugs have rights, but not all people know how to stand up for them rights and don’t know change is possible. People’s rights are not always respected, protected and fulfilled. The community of PWUD also experience difficulties in claiming and asserting their rights equally. Although there continues to be support towards the community of PWUD, their rights are still not fully embedded in Ireland. Decisions-makers and services routinely make decisions that affect the community of PWUD without considering their rights and many PWUD experience high levels of inequality, discrimination and stigmatisation.
