National Drug Strategy 2017-2026 released

Published on 25 Jul 2017

The National Drug Strategy 2017- 2026 has been endorsed by the Ministerial Drug and Alcohol Forum. It outlines the national priorities for preventing and minimising the harms of alcohol, tobacco and other drugs to individuals, families and communities.

The Strategy represents the agreement of all Australian Federal, State and Territory governments on the key policy priorities for the next ten years (2017-2026) and aims to help build safe, healthy and resilient Australian communities.

It was coordinated by the Federal Department of Health and developed in consultation with stakeholders and the public. 

In Western Australia, the Strategy will be used by the Mental Health Commission to inform State-specific policies and strategies relating to alcohol and other drugs.
