International Meeting on "Prisons and Health" in Lisbon 11-12 December 2017:

Conference organised by the Europan Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Abuse (EMCDDA) and the Regional Office for Europe of the World Health Organization (WHO). In her opening remarks the representative of the European Commission, Ms Marianna Zwodziak-Carbonne referred to the EPPIC project as an example of the growing interest of the Commission in the subject of prison health.


EPPIC focuses on drugs prevention policy and practice for young people aged between 15 and 24 who have been in contact with the criminal justice system. We will identify innovative prevention projects and examine the views of young people to find out more about experiences with intervention programmes.


EPPIC will cover research on prevention programmes in prison and community settings as well as forms of diversion and therapy in six European countries: UK, Italy, Denmark, Poland, Germany and Austria.
