EU Web Survey on Drugs 2021


HSE in collaboration with the Health Research Board (HRB) and the European Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction (EMCDDA) are asking people who use drugs in Ireland to complete this survey to help shape the future of drug policies and interventions in Europe.

The voluntary, anonymous survey will run in over 30 countries and 29 languages for a 6 week period. Web-based surveys have the benefit of reaching people who use drugs directly and provide new data rapidly to help identify emerging trends.

Targeted at people, aged 18 and over, who have used drugs in the last 12 months, the survey aims to improve understanding of patterns of drug use and the diverse user groups in Ireland.  The survey is structured in modules on: socio-demographics, drug using patterns, access to treatment, access to drugs (amounts usually bought and prices paid) and how COVID-19 has affected patterns of drug use.
