In the final session representatives of different stakeholders in the drugs field will discuss why and how to incorporate a gender perspective in the implementation of drug policies.
This event is the result of the work of the European group on Gender and Drugs (EGD), set up in preparation of LX Addiction conference 2019. The group is coordinated by the EMCDDA and the Pompidou Group of the Council of Europe, together with UNICRI (United Nations Interregional Crime and Justice Research Institute), EIGE (European Institute for Gender Equality) and several drug experts from different countries.
