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.
  • Improve women's representation in the membership of the Global Commission on Drug Policy, by appointing more globally recognised women leaders in 2019.

  • In country visits meet with networks of women who use drugs in order to highlight the need for women to access tailored harm reduction services and address the impact of over-incarceration of women for drug-related offences.
