Head of focal point: Ms Manina TerzidouThe Greek national focal point is located within the University of Mental Health Research Institute (UMHRI) and operates as the National Centre of Documentation and Information on Drugs. The national focal point operates on the basis of a three-year contract within the Ministry of Health and collaborates with OKANA (the ‘Greek Organisation Against Drugs’), the Greek coordinating body on drug demand reduction, which operates under the supervision of the Ministry of Health. Overall, the national focal point deals with drug-related issues in the field of epidemiology and prevention, and is given a mandate beyond the implementation of EMCDDA related activities. Its responsibilities also include the drafting of the Greek national report on drugs, the annual Greek bibliography on drugs, and the Greek bibliography on alcohol and alcohol-related assignments.
