During the 53rd session the VNGOC prepared a Conference Room Paper for the Thematic Debate, made two statements to the Commission, organised informal dialogues with the President of INCB and the Executive Director of UNODC and co-sponsored two events as well as hosting a daily NGO briefing. For the Thematic Debate we also collected photographs which showed the drug related activities of NGOs around the world. Some of these photographs were used as part of the introduction to the Debate.
The statement prepared for the Thematic Debate can be downloaded here. The slide show of photographs received from NGOs can be sent on request. Please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with the name of the organisation and your postal address.
