U.S. Delegation Participates In Commission On Narcotic Drugs
In this post in the State Department's "DipNote" blog, Alyce Ahn, a foreign affairs officer in the State Department's Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs (INL) Office of Anticrime Programs, writes about the U.S. delegation's participation last week in the 55th session of the Commission on Narcotic Drugs (CND). She outlines the delegation's work at the conference, concluding, "We're already beginning to see operational results from the CND. One country noted that, in response to a resolution, it plans to look into using a life-saving drug that can help prevent deaths from overdose. For its part, the United States looks forward to working with other states, as well as [the U.N. Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC)], in various joint projects and regional counter-narcotics initiatives addressed in the resolutions" (3/19).This is part of the KHN Morning Briefing, a summary of health policy coverage from major news organizations.
