The Inter-American System on Drug Supply Data (SIDAC, by its Spanish acronym) was created in 2020 based on the recommendations of a technical working group on drug supply indicators. The working group reached a consensus to initiate a data collection effort targeting drug supply which led to the first CICAD drug supply report being published in November 2022.

To maintain an up-to-date database on drug supply indicators, the OID uses SIDAC to continuously collect and analyze data on drug seizures, cultivation, production, drug-related arrests, drug markets and other supply-side issues. 

  • Promote data gathering on drug supply control.
  • Improve indicators and measures on drug supply.
  • Support the development of analyses on drug control at the local, national, and hemispheric levels.
  • Technical assistance.
  • Regional, sub-regional, and national training events, and roundtables.
  • Draft and publish of documents.
  • Compile scientific data on drug control in the Hemisphere.
  • Maintain a repository of drug supply data from OAS member states.
