The CBC’s new series We Are Canada profiles Canadian change-makers. A recent episode highlighted the work of epidemiologist Daniel Werb, 2012 scholar. Much of Werb’s work focuses on injection drug use and the spread of HIV/AIDS. During his interview, Werb emphasizes the need to understand the experiences of drug users and to treat them with respect. He hopes to revolutionize Canada’s drug policy by ending the stigmatization of drug use and by creating a better understanding of the factors that lead to drug use in the first place.
