CHILD Implementation Grants

The United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) launches the CHILD Implementation Grants Programme for the first time to strengthen the capacity of civil society to deliver services for children and young adolescents at risk of using drugs.

This global programme focuses on providing technical assistance to national and local authorities working to address the needs of children and young adolescents within a planned system of integrated and mutually reinforcing activities, rather than a series of fragmented and competing initiatives.
