International day against drug abuse 2021: All you need to know

Activists, therapists and organisations working in the field of preventing drug abuse come together on this day to help victims of this social evil.

Worldwide Day Against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking is seen every year on June 26 with a way to spread care about the worldwide continuous drug propensity and take out drug misuse. Activists, counselors and affiliations working in the field of thwarting drug abuse get together on this day to help overcomers of this social monstrosity. 

"Together, we can tackle the world drug problem!" said the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), the UN arm that battles against unlawful drugs and global wrongdoing identified with dealing. 

To sustain movement and cooperation in achieving the goal of a world freed from drug abuse, the UN General Assembly, on December 7, 1987, decided to stamp June 26 as the International Day Against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking. 

'Offer Drug Facts to Save Lives' is the subject of the International Day Against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking this year. The middle this year is to control the spread of deception on the theme and to invigorate the exchanging of real factors related to drugs.
