Combating drugs

Well-being, social cohesion and security are all objectives which guide the action taken by the European Union in combating drugs. In this context, the EU’s action focuses mainly on reducing supply and demand, which links up with both the fight against organised crime and a high level of health protection. The main components are: greater coordination between the competent services in the EU; harmonisation in the field of infringements and penalties; and effective international cooperation. To this end, bodies such as the European Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction and instruments such as the financial strategies and programmes complete the policy framework to combat drugs effectively and to achieve all these defined objectives.
