  • Programa de Seguimiento Judicial al Tratamiento de Drogas en el Sistema de Responsabilidad Penal para Adolescentes (SRPA)

    Programa de Seguimiento Judicial al Tratamiento de Drogas en el Sistema de Responsabilidad Penal para Adolescentes (SRPA)

    MINJUSTICIA. Ministerio de Justicia y del Derecho (Colombia)

    Este programa busca prevenir la comisión de conductas delictivas en adolescentes y disminuir su reincidencia, interviniendo el consumo de sustancias psicoactivas, considerado una de sus principales causas, buscando una respuesta más humana y efectiva frente a las conductas de riesgo cuya relación causal puede ser consecuencia de una adicción. De manera transversal se pretende facilitar la inclusión social de los adolescentes, a través de un esfuerzo interinstitucional que combine varios mecanismos (justicia, salud, educación, capacitación, opciones de empleo y otras medidas sociales y administrativas).

  • International guidelines on human rights and drug policy

    International guidelines on human rights and drug policy

    United Nations Development Programme (UNDP)

    Drug control intersects with much of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the UN Member State pledge to leave no one behind. In line with the 2030 Agenda, the UNDP Strategic Plan 2018-2021 and the HIV, Health and Development Strategy 2016-2021: Connecting the Dots, the International Guidelines on Human Rights and Drug Policy  provide a comprehensive set of international legal standards for placing human dignity and sustainable development at the centre of Member State responses to illicit drug economies. The guidelines cover a diverse set of substantive issues ranging from development to criminal justice to public health.  The guidelines were developed by a coalition of UN Member States, WHO, UNAIDS, UNDP and leading human rights and drug policy experts. The Guidelines are an example of the support that UNDP provides to practically integrate international human rights commitments into national, regional and global policy and programmes.

  • An analysis of post-mortem toxicology practices in drug-related death cases in Europe

    An analysis of post-mortem toxicology practices in drug-related death cases in Europe

    EMCDDA. European Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction

    In the past decade, between 7 000 and 9 000 drug-related deaths (DRDs) have been reported in Europe every year (EMCDDA, 2018). Most are classified as such on the basis of toxicological investigations (more than 85 % of overdose deaths in the European Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction (EMCDDA) Statistical Bulletin are reported with ‘known toxicology’). However, only fragmentary information is given concerning the limitations of the data, such as regional or national differences in the analytical capacity of forensic toxicology laboratories. The objective of this report is to provide an updated analysis of the post-mortem toxicology practices of DRD cases in Europe and to discuss the effect of these practices on the monitoring of DRDs. There were two components to this project: a scoping study and a mapping survey.
