National Addiction & HIV Data Archive Program (NAHDAP)
The National Addiction & HIV Data Archive Program (NAHDAP) acquires, preserves and disseminates data relevant to drug addiction and HIV research. A project of the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), which is part of the National Institutes of Health, NAHDAP supports NIDA's mission to shine the power of science on drug abuse and addiction by supporting research, disseminating data and applying findings to improve prevention, treatment and policy. The scope of the data housed at NAHDAP covers a wide range of legal and illicit drugs (alcohol, tobacco, marijuana, cocaine, synthetic drugs and others) and the trajectories, patterns, and consequences of drug use as well as related predictors and outcomes. By preserving and making available an easily accessible library of electronic data on drug addiction and HIV infection in the United States, NAHDAP offers scholars the opportunity to conduct secondary analysis on major issues of social and behavioral sciences and public policy.
