    Goals / Remit

    World Federation Against Drugs (WFAD) is a multilateral community of non-governmental organisations and individuals. Founded in 2009, with the joint aims to strengthen prevention, increase access to treatment and to promote recovery. The work of WFAD is built on the principles of universal fellowship and basic human and democratic rights. We believe that working for a drug-free world will promote peace, human development, democracy, tolerance, equality, freedom, and justice.

    The World Federation Against Drugs (WFAD) is dedicated to identifying and promoting effective and affordable laws, policies, and programs consistent with modern culture and values that limit illegal drug use and illegal drug trafficking. These initiatives build on a century of international efforts to limit the use of illegal drugs, incorporated into three major treaties accepted by virtually every country in the world and managed by the United Nations. The WFAD further adheres to the CRC and CEDAW conventions.

    Main EU files targeted

    The WFAD mainly targets the following areas of legislative proposal and policies: Organised crime & human trafficking; Drugs policy; EU response to drugs; Crime prevention; EU drugs strategy. Including proposals aiming at ensuring human rights, the rights of children, and other groups.
