Join us and the United Nations in highlighting International Day against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking on June 26th. You can visit the UN’s webpage here: International Day Against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking | United Nations.
Drug use has been on the rise worldwide, unfortunately COVID-19 has proliferated the effects and negative impact. Celebrated each year on June 26th, the UN Office on Drugs and Crime uses the commemorative day to highlight the dangers of drug use and their illegal trade and provides educational material to teachers and public officials all over the world to help spread the message about the extreme cultural and economic harm the trade in drugs is still doing across the globe one hundred years after the war on drugs was initially launched in Shanghai around the start of the 20th Century.
Check out the World Drug Report 2020 for key findings and policy implications: World Drug Report 2020 (unodc.org). Presented in six separate booklets, the World Drug Report 2020 provides a wealth of information and analysis to support the international community in implementing operational policies based on report conclusions. This information is presented in multiple languages!
