The two-week summer course will focus on ‘Community-based interventions for drug-related issues’. Sessions will include lectures on community-based interventions, such as low-threshold facilities, drug consumption rooms and outreach units. Study visits will be organised to one of the Portuguese commissions for dissuasion as well as a local harm reduction centre. During the course, students will participate in interactive workshops to discuss their own projects and views. The course will conclude with an open debate with guest speakers, followed by an exam for those wishing to obtain credits.
