10th Plenary Meeting of MedSPAD Committee
This project, which is an adaptation of ESPAD in Europe, was launched in Rabat in 2003 and provides an overview of drug use among young people in schools in the Mediterranean region and their attitudes towards drugs.
The proposal for setting up a MedSPAD Committee emerged in 2012, following a seminar in Rabat on the use of drug research in policies in the Mediterranean region.
The objective of the MedSPAD Committee is to share experiences among the countries who have conducted a MedSPAD Survey and to collect information on the prevalence of substance use among adolescents, to be used to formulate drug policy.
The EMCDDA is represented at the Committee.
