INCB President participates in ECOSOC high-level panel discussion on the world drug problem and sustainable development

The INCB President participated in the Economic and Social Council High-level Panel discussion on "Sustainable Development and the World Drug Problem: Challenges and Opportunities" on 15 July.  Noting that the drug problem was in essence a health problem, Dr. Naidoo stressed that there can be no sustainable development without adequate investment in health services, for instance by ensuring availability of essential medicines, prevention and treatment of drug abuse, and improving overall health and well-being through addressing illicit drug cultivation, production and trafficking.
