The Australian National Council on Drugs (ANCD) was established as part of the Federal Government’s response to reduce the harm caused by drugs in the community. It played a critical role in ensuring the views of the many sectors involved in addressing drug and alcohol problems, as well as the community, were heard.
An important component of the ANCD’s work was to ensure that policies, strategies and directions in the drug and alcohol field were consistent with the National drug strategic framework.
The ANCD website provided information on drug use in Australia, news and events, and reports and publications.
In December 2014, ANCD was defunded which led to the closing of their website. The content from the ANCD website has been archived by ATODA and is available for download.
