The NFP collects and processes data and information of other institutions and provides national and international organizations with them to help decision making on the exploration, treatment and solution of the drug problem.


The NFP develops the national drug information system which has to be able to supply objective and reliable data to the professional and political decisions, arrangements and programs according to the international standards. The NFP actively assists the national and international policy makers to obtain information on the Hungarian drug situation at one source and in adequate form. It gives methodological support to other institutions to collect, evaluate and disseminate data on drug issues.
