ISSUP Mexico 2017

The 3rd ISSUP Workshop took place together with the 19th International Congress on Addictions organised by Centros de Integración Juvenil (CIJ) in Cancún, Mexico from December 4th - 8th, 2017. We were privileged to welcome over 2,500 participants from 71 countries.

We are extremely pleased to have collaborated with our local partner CIJ and our international organising partners in this important exchange of knowledge and best practices.

ISSUP coordinated training from a range of international partners including inputs from Colombo Plan, UNODC, WHO, PAHO, CADCA and OAS/CICAD. Attendees of the ISSUP training were also able to participate in the CIJ Congress. In addition to the training courses and open panels, a range of expert group meetings were held to discuss best practices and the latest methods in substance use prevention and treatment. 

Our local supporter CONADIC hosted a fantastic cultural event for us. Attendees of the workshop enjoyed an entertaining evening filled with folkloric dances, mariachis and delicious local cuisine.

Thank you to everyone who supported this event, in particular our training and meeting partners.
