Share This

"On the basis of directive 6/2010. (X. 19.) NEFMI of the Ministry of National Resources on the Organisational and Operational Rules of the Ministry of National Resources, following the structural reorganisation of central government drug coordination tasks are now 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). The national drug coordinator is the head of the Drug Prevention Coordination Department. The former drug coordinator was recalled in December 2010, and the new drug coordinator was appointed on 1 February 2011.
"In connection with handling the drug problem, the tasks of the Youth Affairs Division involve preparation and elaboration of the professional directions and development concepts, the coordination of the preparation and realisation of the related programmes, and the operation of the Coordination Committee on Drug Affairs (KKB). The head of the KKB is the state secretary for Social, Family and Youth Affairs.
"A change took place in the background institute of the coordination too: the partial organisational independence of the National Institute for Drug Prevention providing professional support in the realisation of the objectives of the government‘s drug policy was terminated, and now the institute operates within the framework of the National Institute for Family and Social Policy, as the National Drug Prevention Office. On 1 February 2011 a new head of the institute was appointed."
