It covers both the EMCDDA Drug-related infectious diseases indicator, which collects data on the situation, and the responses in the area. The report is based on the indicator’s annual expert meeting, held in Lisbon in June 2017, which brought together national experts from the 28 EU Member States, Norway, Turkey, European neighbourhood countries and partner organisations.
