NEW PSYCHOACTIVE SUBSTANCES

​Reports from harm reduction services across the EU, the EU Early Warning System, EMCDDA data and different surveys suggest that use of New Psychoactive Substances (NPS) is no longer limited to "drug experimenters" or recreational drug users, but moving into populations of problem drug users as well.
Public health, treatment and harm reduction services across Europe are unprepared for the rapidly expanding use of NPS and lack capacity and tools for addressing the rising use of these substances among marginalized, often young, drug consumers, nor for addressing the risks and potential harms associated with these substances.

PILOT PROGRAM “ROMA HEALTH MEDIATORS”

The pilot program "Roma Health Mediators" was implemented under the Roma Youth Action Plan. The idea was based on the need of training Roma as health mediators in Greece. During the implementation period of the program, twenty young Roma from the Attica region received training on relevant theory and bibliography, through informal learning methods, on public health issues that are of major concern to their settlements and gained practical experience through field visits to health facilities. These health mediators will organize interactive workshops in their communities aiming at promoting knowledge/literacy on healthcare issues.
