Since 1994, UNODC has received a contribution from the Drug Abuse Prevention Centre (DAPC) of Japan to support drug prevention activities by non - governmental organisation in low and middle-income countries. Grants have been disbursed globally every year since. In 2012, the process was assigned to be managed by the Prevention, Treatment and Rehabilitation section in the Drugs Branch of the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC). This project falls under the thematic programme of addressing health and human development vulnerabilities in the context of drugs and crime.
The objective of this Grants programme is to strengthen the capacity of civil society to prevent drug use globally using evidence-based substance use prevention interventions with a focus on youth.

UNODC’s CHILD Project, was developed to promote a worldwide coordinated response to children and young adolescents at risk of using drugs and affected by drug use dependence. The project goals include addressing the health and social consequences for children, with the aim of preventing drug use, treatment and care for drug use disorders and facilitating their positive re-integration into and contribution to the larger community. More systemically, the CHILD Project focuses on providing technical assistance to national and local authorities working to address the needs of children and young adolescents within a planned system of integrated and mutually reinforcing activities, rather than a series of fragmented and competing initiatives. The multi-pronged approach includes structured psychosocial interventions and medically administered pharmacological therapy, when indicated.
