Belize joins European prevention curriculum’s first english training course for Caribbean countries

Posted: Monday, September 11, 2023. 6:28 am CST.

By Breaking Belize News Staff: Today marks a significant step in the realm of preventative education as Belize, along with seven other Caribbean nations, participates in the European Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction (EMCDDA) five-day online European Prevention Curriculum (EUPC) basic training course. This event is notably the first time the EMCDDA has presented the EUPC training in English for the Caribbean audience.

Amidst the Caribbean representatives, Belize stands prominently, reflecting its commitment to advancing modern preventative strategies in the region. The initiative is born out of a collaboration between EMCDDA and the Cooperation Programme between Latin America, the Caribbean and the European Union on Drug Policies (COPOLAD III).

This joint venture aims to create a culturally resonant version of the basic EUPC training course for Latin America and the Caribbean. With inclusivity at its core, the course will be available in three languages: Spanish, English, and Portuguese.

The EUPC is a groundbreaking curriculum that offers a robust scientific foundation for prevention. It caters to decision-makers, opinion leaders, and policy-makers at all governance levels. The primary goal is to guide these leaders in making informed decisions regarding fund allocation and priority-setting for effective modern prevention methods.

Further accentuating its commitment to the global community, the EMCDDA has plans to roll out additional training courses in Portuguese using the culturally adapted curriculum later this year. As Belize and its fellow Caribbean nations take this pivotal step, the hope is that tailored preventive strategies will become more prevalent, making communities safer and more informed.
