European Monitoring centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction launches European Prevention Curriculum handbook in Ukrainian

July 7, 2022

The European Monitoring centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction (EMCDDA) has launched a Ukrainian version of the European Prevention Curriculum (EUPC) handbook, in Kyiv, adapted for local context. 

The EUPC is designed to train professionals involved in shaping prevention decisions and policies in Europe, in the context of science-based prevention of substance use.

According to EMCDDA, “advancing the professionalism of the drug prevention workforce in Europe is at the heart of the EUPC. It is hoped that in the longer term this handbook can become part of the training programme for the Ukrainian prevention workforce and that it will contribute to expanding evidence-informed prevention of substance use in the country”.

Ukraine is one of the partners of the EU-funded EU4Monitoring Drugs (EU4MD) project, which has been developed by the EMCDDA as part of its ongoing commitment to strengthening cooperation and sharing expertise with countries in the European Neighbourhood Policy (ENP) area.
