Promoting public health, human rights and social justice through drug policy reform

Transform Drug Policy Foundation is an independent charity that works to change the way drugs are controlled. For over 50 years, the war on drugs has harmed communities, increased the risk to individuals and gifted a multi-billion dollar trade to organised crime.

Transform informs the public about effective drug policy; develops alternative models of regulation; provides a voice for those directly affected by drug policy failures; and supports policymakers in achieving positive change.
