The Global Addiction Annual conference is moving out of Europe for the first time. This pattern is to be continued into the future, with the conference alternating between Europe and other destinations year on year.
This movement between continents reflects the truly global nature that the association is now developing. Delegates at the 2013 conference attended from over 50 countries from all around the world. Only by moving the conference to take place across all continents can cultural differences in addictions be represented fully.
IDHDP will be hosting a session where policies on treating stimulant use, particularly crack cocaine, will feature along with what new thinking needs to take place to stem the terrible violence taking place in South American producer and transit countries.
