The Emmanuel Ivorgba Foundation Joins World Federation Against Drugs

The Emmanuel Ivorgba Foundation has been formally admitted into the Organizational Membership of the World Federation Against Drugs (WFAD). The World Federation Against Drugs (WFAD) is a multilateral community of non-governmental organizations and individuals. We share a common concern that illicit drug use is undercutting traditional values and threatening the existence of stable families, communities, and government institutions throughout the world. Our aim is to strengthen prevention, increase access to treatment and promote recovery.

One of WFAD’s tasks is to organize the biannual World Forum Against Drugs. The World Forum Against Drugs is a global conference that works as a meeting point for people from all continents who are working to prevent drug abuse at grass-root level, on a voluntary basis, professionally or as policy makers.

WFAD supports and is guided by the 1961, 1971 and 1988 UN narcotics conventions and the resolution resulting from the 1998 UNGASS-meeting. WFAD also supports the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, which stipulates in Article 33 that children have the right to be protected from the abuse of illicit drugs. WFAD regards the non-medicinal use of narcotic substances as a severe public health problem which results in major problems for society.
