The Ministry of Welfare led the work on the policy, together with the Ministry of the Interior, the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science and the Directorate of Health. The policy identifies the main goals to be aimed at; work towards these will be described in detail in a formal action plan covering two years at a time. Measures to be taken will address prevention, treatment, post-treatment monitoring and rehabilitation and also the legal framework covering these issues, and they will involve central and local government, the health services, the social services, the educational system, NGOs, law-enforcement agencies and the customs authorities.
