National Action Plan of the Information System in Addictions

The Information System on Addictions (ISZ) is a comprehensive system for monitoring the situation in the field of addictions in the Czech Republic. The National Action Plan for the Information System on Addictions (NAPISZ) is formulated as a tool for planning and framework evaluation of the ISZ.

Initially, this system was referred to as the Drug Information System (DIS), as it historically focused only on the area of addictive substances and mainly on the area of illicit drugs. The last plan compiled in this scope was the National Action Plan for the Drug Information System 2016-2018. It followed on from the National Drug Information System Action Plans prepared for 2003-2004, 2005-2006, 2007-2009, 2011-2012 and 2013-2015. The National Action Plans on Drug Information System (NAPDIS) were further followed by the National Action Plan on Addiction Information System (NAPISZ) 2020-2022.

The plans are coordinated and guaranteed by the National Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Addictions (NMC), which is an organisational part of the Office of the Government of the Czech Republic as the Drug Policy Department. The NMS is the Czech national partner of the European Union's decentralised agency, the European Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction (EMCDDA) based in Lisbon.
