Listen First: International Day against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking

Every year 26th June is celebrated as International Day against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking. 

By resolution 42/112 of 7 December 1987, the General Assembly decided to observe 26 June as the International Day against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking as an expression of its determination to strengthen action and cooperation to achieve the goal of an international society free of drug abuse.


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.
