About Us

The International Program of the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) works with colleagues from around the world to find evidence-based solutions to the public health problems of drug abuse, addiction, and drug-related HIV/AIDS. We build partnerships with countries, organizations, and individual researchers to promote new research initiatives, build international research capacity, and disseminate knowledge. NIDA supports the International Program mission because the Institute recognizes that addiction knows no borders, and that no country can solve the problem by acting alone.

The current International Program research priorities are:

  • Linkages between HIV/AIDS and drug abuse
  • Marijuana
  • Amphetamine-type stimulants abuse
  • Synthetic and other designer drug abuse
  • Inhalant abuse
  • Smoking during pregnancy
  • Drugged driving
  • Projects that address NIDA’s Divisional research priorities and crosscutting research issues
