Israel – Coherency of drugs policy: A structured Analysis

Y. Harel-Fish

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


This chapter presents the findings of a pilot study conducted in Israel as part of
the development and testing of the methodology to evaluate the coherency
of national drug policy, a methodology developed by the Pompidou expert
group. At the heart of the new methodology lies a set of six markers that indicate
the various dimensions of a drug policy that have to be consistent, coherent and
complementary, and that together provide an assessment of the coherency of
the policy as a whole, and whether or not it is compliant with the overall principle
of “well-being”, as stated in the WHO preamble of its 1946 constitution. The objective of the project is to apply the six refined markers and test them in the countries
which participated in their development, to better verify whether they provide
a valid tool to measure the effectiveness and efficiency of a coherent policy on
psychoactive substances.
