Nothing About Me Without Me
The speech is entitled "Nothing About Me Without Me" in acknowledgement of INPUD's (International Network of People who Use Drugs) founding statement "Nothing About Us Without Us". In the speech Matthew explores meaningful participation from his time running a participative drug services in the national health service for ten years through his work as a drug user activist and most recent engagement in the UNAIDS Programme Coordinating Board. He explores the nature of meaningful participation from clinical practice, through staffing and onto engagement in management and policy fora. He draws on reflections and illustrations from his time as health service manager and professional head of service, his time leading the UK drug user movements engagement with the NTA and his current work with the United Nations, to illustrate his argument.
