Hungary’s first national drug strategy 2000–2009 was evaluated in 2009 and a new drug strategy was adopted in December of that year. The National Strategy for Tackling the Drugs Problem 2010–2018 is comprehensive and covers three pillars (Prevention and community interventions; Treatment, care and harm reduction; Supply reduction) and three overarching measures (cooperation and community; coordination and international cooperation; monitoring, evaluation and research). Its objectives are to improve the health status of the society, to increase social safety, and to reduce the rate of drug consumption, the harms, risks and damages of the use of legal and illegal drugs.
