ENLACE is a federation working in the field of addictions, HIV and social exclusion that promotes participation, training and development of associates, claims and attempts to influence social policies to achieve a more just and equal.
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:
IDPC Partner Members
Partner Members are organisations that play a more active role in IDPC’s day-to-day work. These members have the skills, capacity and contacts to engage governments and international organisations on drug policy reform. This level of membership includes clear expectations in terms of involvement in consultations, efficient communication and contribution to the advocacy work. As a result, the selection of Partner Members will be based on the level of engagement of the organisation in IDPC’s work, geographical representation (with no more than one Partner Member per country in most cases), and thematic relevance.
IDPC Network Members
Network Members are organisations that are mostly involved in IDPC’s communications work at a less intensive level. These members receive all IDPC communications, and are involved in exchange of ideas and information, and joint planned activities. These members will be able to use the IDPC alerts and website to promote their work, and will help share IDPC’s news, publications and products with their own contacts. IDPC will usually welcome organisations as Network Members in the first instance, rather than as Partner Members.
UNAD is the Union of Associations and Institutions for Drug Dependent Care, founded in 1985, it is a non-governmental, non-profit organisation involved in the field of drug addiction and problems resulting from them.
ICEERS is a philantropic organisation with headquarters in Europe and Latin America, dedicated to integrating the traditional use of substances declared to be illicit as therapeutic tools in society. ICEERS also aims to defend the human rights of people using drugs for ancestral cultural reasons.
The Bienestar y Desarrollo Association (ABD in Spanish) is a non-governmental organisation, that defends the rights of people in a socially fragile condition. For more than 30 years, we have supported them through different moments of their vital trajectories -individually and collectively- as well as took action within their communities. We focus all our efforts on generating personal autonomy and social coexistence through principles such as ethics, proximity and quality.
