Over the past years, drug trafficking and circulation in Hanoi has still been complicated. However, with the effort of the entire political system, the number of drug addicts has decreased remarkably.
At present, the city records nearly 13,500 drug addicts and users, decreasing over 6,000 people compared to 2013.
In the coming time, the Sector of Labor, War Invalids and Social Affairs will continue strengthening the communication to raise awareness of all-level Party Committees, local governments and people about harmful effects and consequences of using drugs; promoting the role and responsibility of all levels in the fight against drug evils.
All-level authorities, especially commune/ward governments will increase management and supervision over drug users in localities while building healthy communes and wards without drugs and prostitution.
