    El libro Caracterización de condiciones socioeconómicas de mujeres relacionadas con problemas de drogas. Las mujeres privadas de la libertad por delitos de drogas presenta el resultado del proceso de investigación cuyo propósito fue generar evidencia técnica acerca de las características de las mujeres privadas de la libertad por delitos relacionados con drogas, sobre las características de sus familias, de su historial delictivo y penitenciario, de sus condiciones de vida actuales, y del consumo de sustancias psicoactivas desde un enfoque de género y de derechos. Esta evidencia aporta algunas luces en torno a los factores impulsores de la criminalidad entre las mujeres, y en particular en relación con los delitos relacionados con las drogas ilícitas, y facilitará el diseño y puesta en marcha de políticas públicas más ajustadas a la realidad de las mujeres

    UK Prison Drugs Strategy

    HM Prison and Probation Service

    National agency responsible for prison and probation services in England and Wales announces three-point plan for tackling the presence of drugs and drug use problems, based on the principles of restricting supply, reducing demand, and building recovery.

    The availability of illicit drugs in prisons is a threat to safety and security, obstructing recovery for prisoners with drug use problems and leading others to develop problems while in prison. The Prison Drugs Strategy creates a pathway for real and positive change across the prison estate – reducing or eliminating activities that cause serious harm, enabling prisoners to live law-abiding lives, and supporting them to overcome addiction.

    Complementing the themes of the 2017 Drug Strategy, the strategy is split into three sections, supporting the aims of (1) restricting supply, (2) reducing demand, and (3) building recovery. Underneath each aim, the strategy identifies actions relating to five domains that impact the levels of drug use in prisons:
