Consumo recreativo de drogas y reducción de daños en la vida nocturna global

Mark A. Bellis, Karen Hughes


El turismo internacional vinculado a la música dance es responsable de que millones de jóvenes viajen al extranjero cada año para disfrutar de la vida nocturna en diferentes países. Debemos considerar tres problemas de salud asociadas a este reciente fenómeno: cambios en las drogas que consumen durante su estancia en el extranjero, variación de los estándares de salud y seguridad de la vida nocturna en un plano internacional, y la situación relativa de los sistemas que suministran información sobre la salud y la vida nocturna a nivel internacional. Las personas que viajan al extranjero continúan extendiendo nuevas tendencias en el consumo de las drogas recreativas. Sin embargo, las redes internacionales para cooperar en la recogida de información de las nuevas tendencias en el consumo de drogas recreativas y en las intervenciones para enfrentarse a las consecuencias asociadas a problemas de la salud, siguen estando muy poco desarrolladas. El desarrollo de la vida nocturna internacional continúa jugando un papel importante en el desarrollo económico de las ciudades y centros de ocio mundiales. No obstante, urge una mayor inversión en el plano internacional que atienda a la reducción de daños, a la información que incumbe a la seguridad y salud, y a la promoción de intervenciones especialmente dirigidas a jóvenes que salen fuera de sus países.
