A War Against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking

Author: Sherry Helms

“Our efforts to promote development and fight drugs and crime will be more effective if they are rooted in partnerships with the young, civil society, governments and the international community. Working together, we can alleviate the suffering of millions and break the hold of drugs and crime on countries, communities and families.”

                                                          — the UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon—
