The European Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction has launched a Georgian version of the European Prevention Curriculum (EUPC) handbook, adapted to the national context.
The handbook was translated in the framework of the EMCDDA’s first bilateral technical cooperation project with Georgia (EMCDDA4GE).
The EUPC initiative, launched in 2019, aims to advance the professionalism of the substance use prevention workforce in Europe. It was designed to provide training to decision-, opinion-, and policy-makers about the most effective evidence-based prevention approaches and interventions. In addition, prevention coordinators, prevention specialists and heads of non-governmental organisations involved in prevention may also benefit from the curriculum, given the key role they play in influencing countries’ prevention systems.
Besides the handbook, further training materials were also translated and adapted to support the national roll out of the EUPC training, including the European drug prevention quality standards: a quick guide. The translation and adaptation process was coordinated by the Tomáš Zábranský Institute of Addiction Studies at the Ilia State University (Tbilisi), under the supervision of the EMCDDA.
