ATODA recently provided a submission to the public consultation for the ACT Budget 2017 – 2018.
The ATODA Budget Submission 2017-2018 highlights key priorities for a stronger and more effective response to preventing and reducing alcohol, tobacco and other drug related harms in the ACT.
Funding requested in the submission is considered within the context off some persistent drug related harms (e.g. smoking related illness) that could be addressed with minimal investment, better leveraging of existing investments and the commitments made as part of the 2016 ACT Election process.
The identified priorities are considered against the scientific evidence and if implemented will have long-term benefits for individuals, families and communities in Canberra.
