The National Poison Control Center (NPCC) offers medical preventive and therapeutic services to the victims of chemical poisoning. It also deals with the detection and identification of toxic agents in biological material, water, earth and air.
The Center consists of:
- The Clinic for Emergency and Clinical Toxicology (only specialized institution in the country for treatment of acute poisoning, working round the clock)
- The Institute of Toxicology and Pharmacology (covers wide array of subclinical toxicology and pharmacology branches aimed at resolving toxicology problems in clinical practice).
In cases of mass poisoning, the Mobile Toxicological Unit, composed of the NPCC's staff members, is activated.
