International Standards on Drug Use Prevention – UNODC/WHO Second Updated Edition

UNODC and WHO are pleased to join forces and present this updated second edition of the international standards on drug use prevention. The first edition of these Standards was published in 2013, summarizing the evidence of drug use prevention at the global level with a view to identify effective strategies, ensuring that children and youth, especially the most marginalized and poor, grow and stay healthy and safe into adulthood and old age.
As in the case of the first edition, the Standards summarize the currently available scientific evidence on the basis of an overview of recent systematic reviews and describe interventions and policies that have been found to improve drug use prevention outcomes. In addition, the Standards identify the major components and features of an effective national prevention system. This work builds on, recognizes and is complementary to the work of many other organizations (e.g. EMCDDA, CCSA, CICAD, CP, NIDA 2).
