UN Expert Group Mtg Report: Socio-economic assistance as a key component of drug prevention and drug treatment

Via Scoop.itDrugs, Society and Human Rights
On May 12-14, 2011, UNODC held a three-day Experts Group Meeting, entitled “Basic socio-economic assistance as a precondition for effective drug dependence treatment and related HIV/AIDS prevention”. Participants were comprised of experts from industrialized, developing and least-developed countries. International experts  examined how interventions aimed at the alleviation of very basic needs arising from poverty can address and reduce problematic drug use and drug-related health risks.   Outcomes of the meeting are to be used for future policy development.
