Review: A commission established to enhance, as a political priority, the impact of drug trafficking in West Africa. The Commission provides advocacy to government and treatment services through awareness campaigns and promotion of methods other than incarceration to tackle drug dependency. The Commission has enlisted an extremely high profile Board who have embraced the vision to increase harm reduction and prevention strategies, changes to law and policies, and an increase in awareness of local links to involvement in global drug use and trafficking. Interesting for professionals involved in policy development and/or the monitoring of policy to read the news and report sections.
