Global Drug Survey (GDS) is an independent research organisation with information processing as a fundamental part of its purpose. It is important, therefore, that the organisation has a clear and relevant Confidentiality Policy, allowing it to comply with information legislation and to ensure all persons working on GDS projects are aware of their responsibilities.
GDS uses its data to create free harm reduction resources and apps. We also support the development of young researchers, produce academic peer reviewed publications and create data based reports for government, public health and corporate organizations.
GDS does not take funding from tobacco or alcohol industries.
