EU launches population survey to assess drug situation in Georgia

February 22, 2022

On 21 February, the European Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction (EMCDDA) launched a new general population survey in Georgia, under the EMCDDA4Georgia bilateral technical cooperation project (EMCDDA4GE). 

The survey aims to provide an overview of the prevalence of experimental and recreational drug use in Georgia. Such a survey can increase the availability of national drug-related data and statistics in the health field and help shape future drug policies and interventions, prevention activities and better-organised primary health care services.

The survey will be carried out by Alternative Georgia, under the supervision of the Georgian National Drug Observatory and the EMCDDA. The final results are expected in February 2023.
