    Women and drug abuse.

    United Nations. Centre for Social Development and Humanitarian Affairs. Branch for the Advancement of Women

    WOMEN 2000. 1987; (2):1-18.

    It has become clear that, although many groups and organizations are concerned with the general question of drug abuse, there has been little effort made to consider the problem with special reference to women. This issue draws attention to some of the elements that particularly concern women. The 1st section discusses the proceedings of the UN International Conference On Drug Abuse And Illicit Trafficking. Special attention is paid to the Comprehensive Multidisciplinary Outline of Future Activities in Drug Abuse Control and the Declaration of the International Conference on Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking. The next section was prepared by the Division of Narcotic Drugs of the UN. It stresses maternal drug abuse and implications for intervention. The 3rd section discusses the activities of the Un Fund For Drug Abuse Control. The 4th section outlines rehabilitation approaches to drug and alcohol dependence including the ecological approach, survival skills training, assertiveness training, and health promotion. Finally the role of the Food and Agriculture Organizazion of the UN in combating drug abuse is analyzed.
