3 Georgian leaders sign Vienna Declaration, strengthen call for science-based drug policy
Date:7/22/2010

ration calls on governments and international organizations to take a number of steps, including:

  • undertake a transparent review the effectiveness of current drug policies;

  • implement and evaluate a science-based public health approach to address the harms stemming from illicit drug use;

  • scale up evidence-based drug dependence treatment options;

  • abolish ineffective compulsory drug treatment centres that violate the Universal Declaration of Human Rights; and

  • unequivocally endorse and scale up funding for the drug treatment and harm reduction measures endorsed by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the United Nations.

The declaration also calls for the meaningful involvement of people who use drugs in developing, monitoring and implementing services and policies that affect their lives.

The Vienna Declaration is one step in pushing for support of science-based approaches to dealing with illicit drugs. The signature-gathering process aims to galvanise scientists and others working in illicit drug policy and place real and sustained pressure on policymakers to meaningfully consider the scientific evidence regarding the limited beneficial impact and negative unintended consequences of conventional illicit drug policies.

The impact of the Vienna Declaration will be measured over the coming years, and progress reports on the adoption of evidence-based policies will be presented at subsequent International AIDS Conferences. The adoption of the Vienna Declaration's recommendations among high-level policymakers at the local, national, and international levels will also be tracked by the International Centre for Science in Drug Policy.

The Vienna Declaration was drafted by an international team of scientists and other experts. It was initiated by the IAS, the International Centre for Science in Drug Policy (ICSDP), and the BC Centre for Excellence in HIV/AIDS based
