Minimum Quality Standards self-assessment tool (checklist) and feasibility study (FS)

Dear Sir / Madam,

This assessment is a part of pilot assessment and feasibility study on compliance with minimum quality standards in the field of drug demand reduction (http://www.emcdda.europa.eu/news/2015/eu-minimum-quality-standards_en) in EU Member States within the European project »Civil Society Forum on Drugs« (CSFD) (http://www.civilsocietyforumondrugs.eu/), co-funded by the European Commission under the Justice Programme (Drug Policy Initiatives). The pilot assessment and feasibility study is coordinated by the Institute »Utrip« from Slovenia (www.institut-utrip.si) and IREFREA Spain (www.irefrea.org). The purpose of the assessment is to examine the reality of compliance with minimum quality standards in the field of drug demand reduction, including prevention, risk and harm reduction, treatment, social integration and rehabilitation. This assessment intends to help EU Member States, responsible public institutions, civil society organisations and other service providers to develop, sustain and improve interventions in the field of drug demand reduction in compliance with the minimum quality standards, adopted by the Council of the European Union in September 2015.

Due to your expertise and important role in the process of policy- and decision-making and implementation of interventions in the field of drug demand reduction in your country, region and/or city, we would be very grateful if you could fulfil the following assessment tool (checklist) and feasibility study. Your expertise will help us to prepare useful guidelines and recommendations for key stakeholder and professionals (including you) and training concept in purpose to develop, sustain and improve quality drug demand reduction interventions and services in your country and wider. Results of this assessment will be incorporated in some key products of CSFD project including guidelines and recommendations. Results will be presented on most relevant conferences, promoted in media and published on the project website.

Please, fulfil the assessment tool by Friday, 7th June 2019.

Please read the following FAQ / instructions carefully before completing the tool: Link to instructions
