The main purpose of the Master Plan is to implement policies and programmes that reduce the harms caused by alcohol and other drug use and to prevent future problems. To accomplish this, a wide scope of actions, including demand reduction, supply reduction and harm reduction initiatives, have been proposed. Another objective of the Plan is to reduce the harm that drugs has on others such as the individual, families and communities. To this end, the response to the drug problem is to comprehensively focus on approaches that address prevention, treatment, research, legislation, institutional frameworks, law enforcement and interdiction, protection of the borders, drug supply reduction, international cooperation and evaluation. Lastly, this document serves as an instrument to be used to monitor and evaluate the desired outcomes to be accomplished over the time period of the Plan.
