As part of its mission, Dianova actively engages with vulnerable populations, including substance abuser, homeless people and migrants. However, beyond Dianova’s direct services, the organization engages in advocacy activities to change or strengthen the policies and practices that affect them.
Dianova believes that the best way to influence these policies is to create partnerships or alliances to capitalize on the strengths of various organizations. Through its membership in various committees and platforms, Dianova also helps promote important causes while ensuring that the needs, opinions and ideas of all stakeholders are heard and understood.
In this perspective, Dianova International is committed to help bring about positive changes in drug policies and reduce the stigma and discrimination that drug users and people in recovery have to face, to defend human rights, gender equality, women’s empowerment, and to promote education. Lastly, this commitment can help strengthen the role of civil society in international organizations.
