Our Vision

IDPC’s vision is that national and international drug policies are grounded in the principles of human rights and human security, social inclusion, public health, development and civil society engagement.

Our Mission

IDPC intervenes at two levels in the decision making process: We facilitate networking and collaboration between civil society stakeholders and empower our civil society members to better engage with and influence policy-making processes. In parallel, the IDPC Secretariat also intervenes directly in policy making processes by strategically providing analysis and expertise to governments, regional bodies and UN agencies to promote effective and more humane drug policy options on behalf of the network.
