Regional Amphetamine Type Substance (ATS) use: building research capacity to inform public health interventions

Last updated:2012-07-24 08:58:06

The project will develop a research network to enhance the regional and cross-border linkages between organisations engaged in reducing the development impact of illicit drugs. It will complement this by strengthening research capacity of the member organisations to interpret data, advocate for, and implement public health interventions that are both culturally relevant and evidence- based. Data gathered from this project will provide policy-makers the power to advocate for the support of alternative solutions to young problematic ATS users, that not only protects communities, but also help young ATS users reduce the harms associated with ATS use. Specifically the research will aim to improve the knowledge and extent of use, reasons for use, associated harms, and culture of use of amphetamines amongst youth in Thailand, Lao PDR and Cambodia.
