WHO Expert Committee on Drug Dependence (ECDD) Information Repository
World Health Organization (WHO) Launches New Drug Dependence Reports Repository: On Thursday, June 1st, the WHO launched the Expert Committee on Drug Dependence (ECDD) Information Repository, which provides health professionals and drug policy experts with a single searchable database to freely access all technical reports on over 450 substances reviewed by the ECDD.
Prior to the launch of this database, there was limited information readily accessible on the health risks of many of the reviewed substances. INL funded the development of this information sharing database as a part of their work with the ECDD to accelerate reviews of substances for potential international control by the UN Commission on Narcotic Drugs. The repository can be accessed here: https://ecddrepository.org/
