Through the World Drug Report and other flagship publications, the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) continues to uphold the highest standards in the delivery of evidence-based facts and data to both Member States and the public.
Health and humanitarian crises have further demonstrated the need for collective, evidence-based approaches to achieve a vision of health for all and bridge the gap in access to knowledge and resources that vulnerable populations far too often encounter.
UNODC contributes to making this vision a reality through its expert-led research and analysis capabilities and a global mandate that promises to leave no one behind.
The World Drug Report is the best example of UNODC’s commitment to impartial information to support evidence-based policy making and foster greater international cooperation to counter the impact of the world drug problem on health, governance and security. The report is the result of a comprehensive analysis of data from Member States, the academic community and international organizations with a view to assist Member States and the public at large to anticipate and address challenges that may arise in the new future.
