Implementation of the National Drug Control Plan in Hungary

Laws & Policy

"No action plan was drawn up for 2011, the execution of the tasks associated with handling the drug problem was performed by the National Drug Prevention Coordination Department of the Youth Affairs Division under the professional control of the State Secretariat for Social, Family and Youth Affairs of the Ministry of National Resources (NEFMI).6
"In 2011 the Ministry of National Resources announced calls for tenders in three drug-related categories:
"- supporting coordination activities at local level,
"- supporting prevention programs,
"- supporting the operation and development of institutes and civil professional organisations participating in treatment and care.
"A further two tasks of particular significance were also financed by reallocating earmarked resources. The Hungarian Institute for Forensic Sciences was awarded financial support for the increased monitoring of the active substance content of critical illicit drugs and new psychoactive substances (see chapter 10.1), while the Prison Service Headquarters was awarded financial support for ensuring drug prevention activities in detention facilities."
