Two former Hubert H. Humphrey Fellows, Pavel Bém, M.D., and Tomas Zabransky, M.D., Ph.D., were organizers of a meeting on urban drug policy in Prague that led to the adoption of the Prague Declaration, a set of seven principles of effective drug policies and a call for greater participation of urban leaders in forming drug policies.

Regional Meetings Foster Collaborative Research

Drug abuse and HIV/AIDS researchers across the globe are taking advantage of local meetings to bridge the regional gap that often hinders the exchange of research ideas and the development of constructive collaborations. Meetings were held recently in Malaysia, Norway, and Ukraine
