June 26 is the International Day against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking. Established by the United Nations General Assembly in 1987, this day serves as a reminder of the goals agreed to by Member States of creating an international society free of drug abuse.
The United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) selects themes for the International Day and launches campaigns to raise awareness about the global drug problem. The theme from 2007 to 2009 is "Do drugs control your life? Your life. Your community. No place for drugs."
We invite everyone to mark 26 June! It is a unique occasion to take a stand against a problem that affects us all. We count on your support to make this pro-health campaign a success.
