Organized by OPIS and International Doctors for Healthier Drug Policies

The Organisation for the Prevention of Intense Suffering is a Swiss think-and-do tank putting compassion at the heart of the society of the future. OPIS promotes the ethical principle that nothing matters more than preventing or relieving the physical or emotional suffering of sentient beings, both humans and non-humans, with highest priority given to those suffering most intensely. OPIS’s vision is a gentler world where the needs of all are met, and where decision-making is rational, evidence-based and suffering-focused.
