09-02-2017 | Ministère de la Santé

The RELIS 2016 report shows a stabilization in the prevalence of problematic drug use and a reduction in associated mortality, but notes an increase in cocaine use by injection. The average age of victims is increasing overall: 36.8 years in 2015, versus 29 years in 2000. The proportion of intravenous drug users among newly infected people by H.I.V. has increased again in the last three years, with a rate of 21% in 2015. Over the last decade, poly-drug use has become the predominant behavior among drug users. 52% of users get their supplies of illicit drugs exclusively in the Grand Duchy.
