About United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC):

United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) within the framework of Country Programme for Afghanistan and through its project on “Illicit Crop Monitoring (AFGF98)” has been implementing the annual Afghanistan opium survey that provides its national and international stakeholders information on opium cultivation, production, poppy eradication verification and drugs prices in Afghanistan. The primary objective of AFGF98 project is to obtain reliable information on opium cultivation, production and prices in Afghanistan. These objectives are achieved through ground-based surveys as well as satellite imagery studies. The project has been providing this information in timely manner since 2002 in the form of reports of the winter opium survey and annual opium surveys, which are widely disseminated. The AFGF98 Project also serves as a primary pillar of the Country Office for Afghanistan for undertaking technical studies, research and surveys into under-researched areas concerning narcotics, associated organised crime, drug-use related health problems and socio-economic factors.
In view of the above and the changing circumstances in Afghanistan, UNODC Country Office for Afghanistan is implementing a comprehensive and robust survey on drug use that could provide the evidence base to stakeholders to design and implement interventions for the prevention of substance use, and treatment of drug use disorders and prevention and treatment of health consequences of drug use including HIV and other comorbidities.
