International Demand Reduction

Our international demand reduction programs are designed to help

  • Strengthen the ability of host nations to conduct more effective demand reduction efforts on their own;
  • Encourage drug producing and transit countries to invest resources in drug awareness, demand reduction, and training to build public support and political will for implementing counternarcotics programs;
  • Improve coordination of and cooperation in international drug awareness and demand reduction issues involving the US, donor countries, and international organizations; and
  • Utilize accomplishments in the international program to benefit US demand reduction services at home. Because of INL-funded training and technical assistance, host governments have been able to engage their own national institutions, communities and resources to reduce their demand for illicit drugs. INL, moreover, has been able to convince other donor countries and international organizations to provide support to priority USG international demand reduction programs. Significant demand reduction accomplishments include the following:
  • Countries in Latin America and South Asia continued to developed and staff their own drug treatment/prevention programs.
  • Countries in South America implemented their own national level drug awareness campaigns, in addition to conducting their own national level epidemiological surveys.
  • Countries in South America and Asia conducted their own bilateral and regional demand reduction training, based on information learned in INL-funded courses.
  • The European Community, UNDCP, OAS, UNICEF, Colombo Plan, and host governments co-sponsored with INL regional training events in Latin America, South Asia, and Eastern Europe, and the development of specialized drug prevention projects for high-risk youth in Latin America.
