On 07 December 1987, the United Nations General Assembly issued a resolution declaring the 26th of June of every year as the International Day Against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking (IDADAIT). It aims to strengthen action and cooperation in achieving the goal of a world free of drug abuse. For this year, since the date of the IDADAIT 2022 falls on a Sunday, the celebration will be held on 27 June 2022 (Monday), instead.

As circulated by the United Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), this year’s observance will carry the theme “Addressing the Drug Challenges in Health and Humanitarian Crises”. The theme focuses on UNODC's efforts to address existing and emerging transnational drug challenges stemming from situations of crisis. With restrictions loosening after two years, the DDB will finally hold an in-person program to showcase regional and international organizations’ involvement in the anti-drug campaign. The celebration will be streamed live via our official Facebook page and YouTube channel.
