Monitoring, research, education, prevention and policy

Drug use, the health and social consequences of drug use, and drug markets are constantly changing. We tracks these changes closely through various monitoring systems and research programs. This work contributes to the prevention of drug use and the reduction of drug-related problems by developing, implementing and evaluating national drug policies, preventing and sharing knowledge and expertise with healthcare professionals and the general public. In addition, we offer governments and policymakers the data they need to develop informed drug strategies.
