Drug checking at festivals

ING Art Center - Left room
Since 1999, the French NGO Médecins du Monde (MdM) has developed a specific drug checking service with face to face interviews in order to improve individual knowledge and promote health. Today, MdM is developing a national network of drug checking services in France, accompanying partners towards a transfer of skills and aiming a deployment in harm reduction facilities.
