Call for Global Trainers
ISSUP and UNODC announce the formation of a pool of Global Trainers with the support of the U.S. State Department Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs (INL).
The ISSUP staff team met in June to discuss the coming months and updates to the website. The ISSUP team works remotely in different locations internationally so it is great to come together face-to-face to work on big developments and nuanced tasks.
Last week Joanna Travis-Roberts attended the 3rd ICUDDR conference in San Diego, USA. The International Consortium of Universities for Drug Demand Reduction (ICUDDR) event brought together a range of representatives from universities around the world who are running or are interested in running addiction studies.
At the beginning of June ISSUP staff attended the Trainer Development Task Force Meeting in Washington, DC. A number of experts came together to discuss the development of a trainer recruitment and skills development model for healthcare professionals interested in or currently working in the substance use prevention or treatment fields.
