In its letter dated 1 May 2007 the Ministry of the Interior and Health requested the National Board of Health to provide a comprehensive medical report on existing knowledge about prescription of heroin for drug users.

The aim of this report is to assess the extent to which there is a foundation for grounds to supplement existing substitution treatment using methadone and buprenorphine with an offer of substitution treatment with injectable heroin for selected groups.
