DRUG-RELATED DEATHS AND MORTALITY

The drug-related deaths (DRD) indicator provides comparable and reliable data on the number and the profile of individuals who die of acute poisoning directly attributable to drug use.

The mortality indicator provides comparable and reliable data on the causes of death through long-term monitoring of drug users.

Every year, EKTEPN collects data on overdose deaths from the Hellenic Police. The data are presented longitudinally in the annual reports of the Greek REITOX Focal Point.

An obstacle to the full implementation of the mortality indicator in Greece and other European countries is legislation on the protection of sensitive personal data. EKTEPN collects preliminary data.

For more information about the implementation of the DRD indicator in Europe, click here.
