Summary

Following up on the previous year, on 23 May, the Mission organised an additional seminar on drug demand and harm reduction in Prishtinë/Priština, which hosted 30 representatives from ministries of health, internal affairs, education, labour and social welfare, Kosovo Police, civil society and students from universities and secondary schools. In line with its aim to present the recent trends of new psychoactive substances, increase awareness among the participating institutions/organizations and to enhance co-operation between relevant stakeholders, the seminar concluded with participants adopting findings and recommendations to better address drug demand and harm reduction. Recommendations mainly covered prevention and education aspects, treatment and rehabilitation, re-socialisation and re-integration, as well as inter-sectorial co-operation and co-ordination, which will be reviewed again in the seminar planned to take place next year.
