New EU drugs strategy endorsed

New EU drugs strategy endorsed

The new EU drugs strategy (2013–20) was endorsed by the Justice and Home Affairs Council on 7 December. Through an integrated, balanced and evidence-based approach to drugs, the strategy aims to contribute to reducing drug demand, drug supply and drug-related health and social risks. The strategy is structured around two policy areas (reducing supply and demand) and three cross-cutting themes: coordination; international cooperation; and information, research, monitoring and evaluation. For more on the strategy’s objectives, see Council's document (CORDROGUE 101).
