RODRIGUE, Pedro Barino  and  RONZANI, Telmo Mota. Drug Use in Rural Contexts: Systematic Review in Latin America and Caribbean. Gerais, Rev. Interinst. Psicol. [online]. 2021, vol.14, n.spe, pp. 1-19. ISSN 1983-8220.

This study aimed to clarify the drug use in rural contexts in Latin America and Caribbean. This is a systematic review following the Prisma protocol in the databases: Lilacs, PePSIC, PsycINFO/PsycNET, PubMed e SciELO. The final sample consisted of 20 articles; the results indicate a prevalence in considering the "drug problem" from an epidemiological perspective; however, criticism and other constructions with more integrative visions still exist; the rural contexts are heterogeneous and crossed by socioeconomic issues. In this sense, we discussed a view in which history, culture, geography, territory and population are essential for the perception of agents in these contexts.

Keywords : Systematic review; Drugs; Rural areas; Substance-related disorders; Rural population.
