As participant of the Policy Advice and Strategy Development project, Dr. Najd Badri, Pharmacist, Author, and Public Health Activist from Sidi Bouzid, analyzes in his policy paper the current state and approach of Tunisia's drug policy and gives recommendations for improvement.


The drug control approach adopted in Tunisia was deployed in the context of punitive criminal justice claims at the expense of human rights and public health. Today however, drugs are even more accessible than in the past, and more people than ever are imprisoned for the production, trafficking, sale or use of drugs. In addition, a missing base of solid data, and a heterogeneous institutional policy design hinders the development of a coherent approach. As problems remain unresolved, there is a need to change the current domestic drug policy from the punitive criminal approach to the human rights and health approach. This shift
in policy may offer a reasonable solution to win the „war against drugs“.
