Academic publication: civil society experts on migrants who use drugs in the EU

The International Journal of Drug Policy published an article based on the research from our project on services for vulnerable migrants who use drugs in the EU.

Between April and September 2022, a panel of 57 experts on migration and/or drug use, working in 24 countries, participated in a three-stage Delphi study to develop statements and recommendations about drug use and access to healthcare services for migrants who use drugs in the EU.


This study aims to reach consensus among experts in the EU on the current situation regarding vulnerable migrants who use drugs in the EU and to develop a set of actionable recommendations.


Our findings show that to increase access to healthcare services for migrants who use drugs, policy action and increased collaboration are required by the EU as a whole and by individual EU member states and collaboration among healthcare providers and social welfare services are necessary.
