Forthcoming policy developments

As illustrated in the Cyprus News Agency on 25th November 2019, the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sport and Youth announced the preparation of the National Strategy for Sports. The preparation begins by conducting a research and this is the first step towards modernizing Cypriot sports.

In addition, in October 2020, a press conference (Δημοσιογραφική Διάσκεψη για την Παρουσίαση του Πρωτοκόλλου Συνεργασίας) took place in Nicosia for the presentation of the Cooperation Protocol for the Prevention and Treatment of Illegal Substance Abuse in Schools which will be implemented from 2021 in collaboration with the Ministry of Labour, Welfare and Social Insurance, and the Ministry of Justice and Public Order.

Ongoing debates

Over the last years, the Cyprus professional and scientific Psychological Association (CYPSA) raised the issue of developing a national strategy on suicide prevention in Cyprus (Ανακοίνωση 10η Οκτωβρίου: Παγκόσμια Ημέρα Ψυχικής Υγείας 2019 “Εστίαση στην Πρόληψη των Αυτοκτονιών”). Therefore, this emerging issue by CYPSA aspires to open a dialogue with the Ministry of Health for the development of the strategy.
