Executive Secretary, Global Commission on Drug Policy
Khalid Tinasti

Gender equality is central in addressing the unintended consequences of current drug control policies which disproportionately impact women. By pledging to support the IGC mission, the Global Commission on Drug Policy highlights its unwavering commitment to provide equitable space for women and men to be equally empowered to advance their rights and advocate for their well-being.

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.
  • Ensure that gender equality and women representation is maintained in the expert review panels of the yearly publications of the Global Commission.

  • Promote, in country visits, by meeting with the networks of women who use drugs; highlighting the need for women to access tailored harm reduction services; and addressing the impact of over-incarceration of women for drug-related offences.
