The Master Plan concentrates on the two major dimensions of drugs policy, demand reduction
and supply reduction. It also covers a number of cross-cutting themes: international cooperation,
research, information and evaluation.

The eleven general aims of the Master Plan are to:
(a) ensure that drugs remains a top priority for Bermuda;
(b) ensure that actions are evaluated;
(c) adopt a balanced approach to drugs control;
(d) give greater priority to demand reduction in the form of drug prevention education,
and the reduction of the adverse consequences of drug use;
(e) reinforce the fight against drug trafficking and the use of illicit drugs;
(f) encourage multi-agency cooperation and the involvement of civil society;
(g) ensure collection and dissemination of reliable and comparable data on drugs;
(h) promote international cooperation, based on the UNGASS principles;
(i) emphasize that implementation of the strategy will require appropriate resources;
(j) provide a guide (a directory) to all stakeholders to be utilized when setting their
priorities in the area of drugs over the next five years; and
(k) provide a solid base for evaluations to be carried out at mid-term and on completion
