2. The Pillars

prev pageTOC |next page

This part of the National Drug Strategy sets out the objectives of, and actions against, each of the three pillars of the Australian harm minimisation approach—demand reduction, supply reduction and harm reduction. Each of the pillars is equally important to the success of the strategy.



The objectives and actions listed under each pillar are not exhaustive but provide a general explanation of what is involved.

The approach and the actions specified take into consideration differences across drug type, disadvantaged populations, age and stage of life and settings.
