CND Special event: LAUNCH OF THE WORLD DRUG REPORT 2016

26 June marks the International Day Against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking.

 

The Commission on Narcotic Drugs (CND) will host a Special Event on 23 June, where the World Drug Report 2016 will be launched to commemorate the International Day Against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking. The event will be held in room C3 of the Vienna International Centre, from 1-3 PM.  Delegates of NGOs in ECOSOC Consultative Status are invited to attend.  Should you require any further information, please contact VNGOC at info@vngoc.org.

Last April, a new campaign on science-based drug prevention entitled "Listen First“was launched by UNODC, WHO and the Governments of France and Sweden. The campaign has been launched to raise awareness around listening to children and youth as the first step to help them grow healthy and safe.The campaign will also act as this year's World Drug Day theme. You can find more about the campaign here.

We encourage you to share this message with NGOs in your networks working on drug-related issues and to keep us informed of activities you may wish to organise on the occasion of the International Day against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking.

Furthermore, we encourage our affiliates and partners to reach out to the public on this day with the message that drug use disorders are preventable and treatable.
