Unique organisation – unique approach
WOCAD/Women's Organisations Committee on Alcohol and Drug Issues is the Swedish women's organisations collaborating body for issues concerning alcohol, narcotics and addictive drugs. WOCAD's main work is preventive. Our target groups comprise girls and women of all ages.

Why concentrate on girls and women?
Dependency on alcohol, narcotics and drugs is a national health problem, girls and women being the most vulnerable groups. Research is largely based on men as well as various forms of treatment and care. WOCAD's activities concentrate on girls and women.
