Facts and stats

  • According to data provided by drug treatment centres in 2011 some 0.1 % to 1.4 % of a sample of 373 users in treatment reported being HIV positive.
  • The Cyprus Anti-Drugs Council coordinates the development of strategies to reduce drug-related harm.
  • In 2011, based on treatment demand data, there were estimated to be between 780–1 157 problem opioid users (1.3–2.0 per 1 000 inhabitants aged 15–64) and the total number of problem drug users was estimated at 1 045–1 506 (1.8–2.5 per 1 000 inhabitants aged 15–64). There is no clear trend in the number of PDU and opiate users over the years, and the figures should be treated with caution due to the methodological limitations.
