United Nations (UN) Toolkit on Synthetic Drugs is a web-based platform with a wide range of electronic resources that offer innovative and practical tools on how to approach challenges related to synthetic drugs and particularly opioids.


Humanity has experienced several opioid crises but none as devastating as the present one affecting mainly North America with fentanyl and its analogues, and in parts of Africa and the Middle East with tramadol.


The Toolkit is tailored to experts, practitioners, policy and decision makers working in the fields of health, forensics, research, and has been developed in an interactive and user-friendly way for the benefit of Member States. You can have a toolkit in your pocket.
