About the world drug campaign

The United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) is leading the global campaign to raise awareness about the major challenge that illicit drugs represent to society as a whole, and especially to the young. Mindful of fundamental human rights, every drug user should be treated with respect, dignity, compassion and in line with the available scientific evidence, including the WHO, UNODC and UNAIDS comprehensive package of nine HIV interventions.

UNODC encourages as many awareness-raising activities as possible around the globe and invites individuals, non-profit organizations, the private sector and Member States to get involved by:

  • Organizing outreach or institutional events to mark 26 June, the International Day against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking;
  • Spreading the word about the campaign through your own networks and contacts;
  • Using the campaign slogan and logo in promotional products, websites and social media; and
  • Donating funds to your local NGO and community-based organizations in support to drug and HIV prevention and treatment efforts, or making in-kind contributions to the campaign and related events.
