The UNODC Drug Dependence Treatment and Rehabilitation unit benefits from the generous support of a number of donors and organizations:
OPEC Fund for International Development
United Arab Emirates
United States of America
UN-One Fund Vietnam
Thanks to the committed help of these countries and institutions, UNODC is able to support Member States in improving the lives of those affected by the negative impacts of drug use disorders.
Close collaboration and coordination with United Nations Agencies and other partners is key to our work. It maximizes the impact and effective use of resources, whilst harnessing the strengths and mandates of each organization.
One example of this collaboration is the UNODC-WHO Programme on Drug Dependence Treatment and Care (GLOK32), a global implementation platform, which is being managed under the joint leadership of UNODC and WHO. This platform allows for the two agencies, together with Member States, other inter-governmental organizations, NGOs, professional associations, academic institutions and private entities to join efforts in reaching the ultimate goal of improving coverage and quality drug dependence treatment and care in low-and middle-income countries.
Within the organization, the UNODC Drug Dependence Treatment and Rehabilitation unit works in close collaboration with other relevant sections. The UNODC's Regional Sections oversee their respective regional programmes, that represent an overarching strategic framework under which UNODC provides technical assistance to the various geographic regions of the world. Currently they are being implemented in Africa and Middle East, Europe, West and Central Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean, South Asia and South East Asia and the Pacific. The Drug Dependence Treatment and Rehabilitation unit also benefits from and supports a network of field offices that covers more than 150 countries around the globe.
The Thematic Programme Addressing Health and Human Development Vulnerabilities in the Context of Drugs and Crime (2009) outlines the broad UNODC strategy to address health and human development issues in the context of illicit drugs and crime. It is fully in line with and supports UNODC regional programmes and global projects, providing a wider view to health and human development issues as well as future and emerging areas of work.
