Drug Policy Modelling Program (DPMP)

DPMP provides policy advice on responses to illicit drug use, often using models. These include cost-benefit analyses (eg., on legalisation of cannabis use), system dynamics models (eg., on estimating unmet demand for opioid pharmacotherapy treatment) and agent-based models (eg., on policing a street heroin market). DPMP also studies the policy process in order to more effectively influence it through research.
