"The distribution of responsibility on a central level requires coordination. This is handled by the Ministry of Health which acts as the central coordinator of projects carried out by various authorities. This Ministry regularly assesses the overall drugs policy, including the need for adjustment. This also includes the need for interdisciplinary initiatives as a response to current and future challenges. The Ministry is also responsible for the necessary follow-up on the implementation of the interdisciplinary initiatives which are reflected in the national action plan against drug abuse."
