The ‘quick guide’ to the European Drug Prevention Quality Standards (EDPQS), published in 2013 by the European Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction (EMCDDA) in collaboration with the Prevention Standards Partnership, is now available in ten languages, with the most recent addition being Spanish.
This translation was made possible through the Cooperation Programme between Latin America and the European Union on Drugs Policies (COPOLAD), a partnership cooperation programme between the European Union (EU) and Latin America (LA).
The EDPQS have informed COPOLAD’s own efforts to establish quality criteria for demand reduction within the Iberoamerican countries. The translation of the EDPQS into Spanish was considered an essential step to help develop a shared vision of ‘quality in prevention’, involving also Spanish-speaking actors in prevention.
We’re especially pleased to have a Spanish version of the Quick Guide available, as our Spanish colleague Jesús Morán Iglesias was among the key initiators of the EDPQS project.
