The IDPC Drug Policy Guide brings together global evidence, best practice and experiences to provide expert analysis across the spectrum of drug policy.

Each chapter of the Guide introduces a specific policy challenge or principle, and presents advice and recommendations to promote effective, balanced and humane drug policies at the national, regional and international levels:
• Chapter 1 describes the five core policy principles to which all IDPC members agree as the basis for our collective advocacy work
• Chapter 2 outlines the key issues related to public health – from scheduling and access to essential medicines, to drug prevention, harm reduction and treatment services.
• Chapter 3 offers guidance on the criminal justice system – including alternatives to incarceration, proportionate sentencing, regulated markets and decriminalisation, as well as policies in prisons.
• Chapter 4 finally turns to development, alternative livelihoods and the rights of indigenous groups.
