The United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime was established in 1977, with the prime goal of eradicating international crime, particularly relating to the use of illicit drugs. The organ pushes to achieve minimal terrorism, drug abuse, corruption, and criminal trafficking worldwide and assists any Member Nation in need regarding such issues. There are up to 150 Member Nations along with 20 field offices.
The regional offices of the African continent particularly strive to conclude issues relating to transnational crime, criminal justice, anti-corruption, illicit drug use and drug trafficking, terrorism and human trafficking. As a region with no shortage of crime and corruption, Africa is always a main focus of the UNODC and faces some of the most difficult challenges relating to criminal activity, substance abuse and corruption.
