On 7 December 1987, the General Assembly decided to observe 26 June as the International Day against Drug as an expression of its determination to strengthen action and cooperation to achieve the goal of an international society free of drug. Supported each year by individuals, communities and various organizations all over the world, this global observance aims to raise awareness of the major problem that illicit drugs represent to society.
This year’s theme highlights that justice and health are two sides of the same coin when it comes to addressing drug problems.
Effective responses to the world drug problem require inclusive and accountable institutions of criminal justice, health and social services to work hand in hand to provide integrated solutions, in line with the international drug control conventions, human rights obligations and the Sustainable Development Goals.
UNODC encourages individuals, non-profit organizations, the private sector and Member States to get involved in its social media campaign to mark this day and invites them to draw on the resources provided in the social media campaign package.
International days are occasions to educate the public on issues of concern, to mobilize political will and resources to address global problems, and to celebrate and reinforce achievements of humanity. The existence of international days predates the establishment of the United Nations, but the UN has embraced them as a powerful.
We notice that the rat of drugs spraying among the youth in our beloved country Sudan are increasing day after day as a signal for danger which made us too worry for that hidden killer because drugs are consider as one of enemies which threaten the development of the countries in all over the world so we have to be a ware of that and to reflex that to our families our societies and our youth.
