Click on individual countries to see their statements

Drug control bodies and governments are bound by the overarching obligations created under articles 55 and 56 of the 1945 UN Charter, which promote universal respect for, and observance of, human rights and fundamental freedoms. Human rights stem from the dignity and worth of the individual. For more information, check the IDPC Drug policy Guide.
