Dianova is for the fifth consecutive year participating in a parallel event coinciding with the 59th annual session of the Commission on Narcotic Drugs (CND59). The title of this event is “Addiction Treatment in Southern Europe: Providing Solutions in Times of Crisis.” Event organizers have invited national and International representatives of the CND and the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), as well as representatives of NGOs that deal with addiction.

This parallel event will feature representatives from three organizations that specialize in treatment: KETHEA (Greece), Asociación Proyecto Hombre (Spain) and Dianova International. These representatives will focus the impact of the crisis on drug-related problems in Slovenia, Spain, Greece, Italy, and Portugal. Panelists will also discuss risks and challenges that new needs create for treatment and for drug policy strategies.

This event will take place on Thursday, 17 March from 9 to 9:50 a.m. in the MOE79 Conference Room of the Vienna International Center, Vienna (Austria). We hope to see you there!
