Enhanced Knowledge of Indonesian Policymakers on the Nature, Prevention and Treatment of Drug Use Disorders

30 policymakers from the Indonesian Ministry of Social Affairs, the National Narcotics Board (BNN), the Ministry of Health, Ministry of Law and Human Rights, the Ministry of Interior, and other entities participated in a three-day workshop on creating humane, effective and evidence-based drug use prevention and drug dependence treatment and care services.

This training, being held from 14 – 16 October 2019 in Jakarta, Indonesia was organized by UNODC Headquarters together with the UNODC Programme Office in Indonesia (POIDN), the Indonesian Ministry of Social Affairs and with the generous support from the Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs, U.S. Department of State (INL).

With the involvement and active participation of public governmental institutions, treatment centres, civil society organizations and prevention and health professionals, this UNODC policymakers training promotes a systematic, intersectoral and multidisciplinary solution in building a health-and human-rights-oriented response to the problem of drugs and to reduce the burden caused by associated health and social consequences.

Moreover, this initiative is all the more crucial in the follow up on the United Nations Special Session on World Drug Problem 2016 (UNGASS) and to progress Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) 3, 5, 8, 10, 16.
