Countries: national drug-related information and data


In Romania, the financing of drug-related activities is decided annually by the entities in charge of their implementation. Estimates on labelled drug-related public expenditure (1) go back to 2004 but their completeness varies over time. Therefore, it is not possible to provide an estimate of Romanian drug-related public expenditure.

The budget of the National Anti-Drug Agency, i.e. of the agency that coordinates national drug policy, is the only budget item consistently reported over time. However, its share of the total drug-related expenditure is unknown. In the period 2009–12, on average the NAA’s budget represented about 0.003 % of gross domestic product.

The available information does not allow the total size and trends in drug-related public expenditure in Romania to be reported.

  • (1) Some of the funds allocated by governments for expenditure on tasks related to drugs are identified as such in the budget (‘labelled’). Often, however, the bulk of drug-related expenditure is not identified (‘unlabelled’) and must be estimated by modelling approaches. The total budget is the sum of labelled and unlabelled drug-related expenditure.
