The International Doctors for Healthy Drug Policies (IDHDP)'s purpose is to increase the participation of medical doctors in drug policy reform. There is a gap between evidence based practice and drug policy in many countries, and IDHDP aims to lobby internationally to influence changes in drug policy, promote harm reduction and create healthy drug policies. We believe that doctors are in a strong position to help to achieve this. IDHDP also offers support to doctors in their home countries or regions by having core objectives/ position statements, which promote harm reduction and healthy drug policies.
If you are a doctor, and agree with our aims please become a member by completing the membership form found on IDHDP's website and add the issues that you would like to be addressed by IDHDP. IDHDP also has discussion forums on clinical and policy issues to share ideas and practice.
