The observance was instituted by the General Assembly Resolution 42/112 of 7 December 1987.
Building on the success of last year, the theme for 2017 is: “Listen First – Listening to children and youth is the first step to help them grow healthy and safe”. It is an initiative to increase support or prevention of drug use that is based on science and is thus an effective investment in the wellbeing of children and youth, their families and their communities.
