Join us on March 09
"Civil Society participation in policy development, implementation, and evaluation"
Date: 9th March, 2023
Time: 8:00 AM EST
Civil Society Organisations play a significant role in the design, development, implementation, monitoring, and evaluation of drug policies worldwide. Because they are in direct contact with people who use drugs, they can raise issues, concerns, and needs for this collective. There is a growing consensus that people who use drugs (represented by civil society) must have a voice in drug policy-making. This webinar aims to understand their role in policy development in relation to drug use.
