ADF focuses on preventing the harms associated with illicit drugs and alcohol in Australia.
Our membership has been growing organically since IDPC was set up in 2006. Members can be NGOs, academic institutions, think tanks or professional networks, but they must have a national or international outlook, and a credible track record in the drug policy field.
There are no membership fees, but all members need to be committed to supporting the IDPC vision and mission, strategic directions, policy principles and work plan.
IDPC has two types of membership: network members help disseminate our ideas and materials, while partner members are more actively engaged in the implementation of our work plan. We come together to facilitate open debate on drug policy issues, and to promote more humane and effective policy at a national and international level.
The APDIC is auspiced by the Australian National Council on Drugs (ANCD) to advise the ANCD and the Australian Government on appropriate ways to work with our regional neighbours to share the knowledge and understanding of successful strategies on drug demand reduction, particularly via work with the community sector, as well as to learn from each other’s expertise and experiences.
