Trends in stimulant use worldwide:

  • Rising prevalence in North America, Asia and sub-Saharan Africa
  • An end to a long term decline in Western Europe
  • High prevalence of use of cocaine and its derivatives in Latin America and the Caribbean
  • Despite this, harm reduction for stimulant use is less established than harm reduction for opioid use
