How to Become a National Chapter

If you are interested in establishing a National Chapter, we welcome interest from credible host organisations.

Once you become a National Chapter, you will be part of a global drug demand reduction community, where you will operate at the local level, as well as engage with other National Chapters around the world.

Process of establishing a National Chapter: 

  1. Expression of Interest - send an email with your organisation's details to nationalchapter [at] issup [dot] net 
  2. ISSUP releases a tender announcement to the country for any organisation to apply
  3. Review applications against criteria and in consultation with regional partners
  4. Establish and launch the National Chapter

If you would like to learn more about being a National Chapter, please see our National Chapters Guidelines below for further information. Or view our current, established National Chapters, where you can learn more about who they are, what they do, and their latest news and activities.
