Summary Drug Law Reform in East and Southeast Asia is unique because it gathers perspectives from all over Asia into one place, allowing for effective advocacy. Previously, there was no single source of material that can be used by health professionals and others in East and Southeast Asia on drug policy. Neither was there a book that explains recent changes towards harm reduction and treatment modalities to the general public in East and Southeast Asia.
