First national drug use survey begins

The first nationwide survey on the extent of drug abuse in Maldivian society, dubbed “National Drug Use,” has begun today.

According to a press statement issued by the Health Ministry, the survey is being carried out with financial assistance from the European Union (EU) and will be conducted in collaboration with Maldivian company Enova Pvt Ltd.

Professional assistance to the survey, which will seek to identify the extent of drug use among Maldivians aged 16 to 64 years, was provided by the UNODC and the All India Institute for Medical Science.

A final report on the survey will be released in February 2012.
