The ANCD was established as part of the Federal government's response to reduce the harm caused by drugs in our community. The Council occupies a unique position by virtue of its role in enhancing the partnership between government and the community. It has a pivotal advisory, advocacy and representative functions, with a significant role to provide government Ministers with independant, expert advice on matters related to licit or illicit drugs.
