A global economic crisis should not prevent aid towards developing countries, but it calls for wiser and more effective policies. This article proposes specific interventions with regard to drug donations, as well as a more general mentality which should govern related policies. It is generally acknowledged that donations in cash are preferable to donations in kind, but many problems persist either way, rendering obvious that some alternative approaches need to be adopted or enhanced. In the long run, independency from foreign interventions is significant for any developing country. Therefore, we recommend interventions which have the potential to sustain healthy economic development.
