Short description:
The Association DIOGENIS is a non-profit organisation whose main objective is to promote drug policy dialogue in Southeast Europe. DIOGENIS promotes the cooperation of NGOs in the Balkan countries and seeks cooperation with scientists, research institutions and bodies responsible for the policy on drugs. Main goal of the Association is to help achieve a coherent, consistent and effective drug policy.In our opinion, this can be done only through close cooperation of the responsible political actors with scientists, relevant agencies and organisations that provide services for prevention, treatment and social (re) integration, those responsible for law enforcement and the people facing the problems in everyday practice.
The Association’s aims are:
-to promote objective and open dialogue at national, regional and international level in order to achieve a coherent, consistent and effective Drug policy
- to develop national, regional and international cooperation, partnerships and networks for a more effective drug policy on supply and demand, public health protection and promotion of social security.
- support regional cooperation and coordination between NGOs working in the field of drugs, promote and further develop and consolidate the Network of NGOs and create good relationships with experts, scientists and policy makers responsible for the drug policy in the countries of Southeast Europe
