This publication is a product of project DAWN — Drugs and Alcohol Women Network — initiated by UNICRI –United Nations Interregional Crime and Justice Research Institute- in 2010 with the support of the Department for Anti-drug Policy of the Government of Italy. It aims to promote the development of a gender-sensitive approach among social and health practitioners to better meet the specific needs of female alcohol and drug abusers, according to Resolution 55/5 "Promoting strategies and measures addressing specific needs of women in the context of comprehensive and integrated drug demand reduction programmes and strategies" by The United Nations Commission on Narcotic Drugs. The EMCDDA –European Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction– (partner of COPOLAD's Programme) contributed to two chapters into this book.
