2016 UN General Assembly Special Session To Focus on Drug Abuse Policy

The United Nations (UN) will hold a special session of the General Assembly (UNGASS) in 2016 to develop “more effective responses to drug trafficking based on public health, respect for human rights, and harm reduction.” In addition to official contributions from government agencies in the 193 UN member states, nongovernmental organizations and individual drug abuse researchers will have opportunities to participate in the special session preparations.
