Citywide Pre-Budget Submission

15 Sep 2020

We know that Community Drugs Services save lives - Restoration of Core Funding is now critical.


There has been no process to begin restoring the budgets that were cut every year between 2007 and 2012, with no increase in the allocation in 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016. Since 2017, the budget allocation to the Dept of Health for the implementation of the National Drugs Strategy RHSR has been increasing each year and yet still in 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2020 there has been no increase in the core DATF budget.
