Sub-Working Group 2.2

Information Sharing, Interagency Collaboration and Policy Formulation

Data systems and research must be maintained, enhanced, and supplemented so drug control practitioners, researchers, and policymakers are continually informed by the most up to date and accurate information. This group emphasizes initiatives that expand information sharing on current and new trends in drug use, and identifying areas of interest to collaboratively address data and evidence gaps to inform policy and programs nationally and regionally.
