The WHO/UNODC Global Initiative on the primary prevention of substance abuse (Global Initiative) was a joint project of the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC)—formerly known as the United Nations Drug Control Programme (UNDCP)—and the World Health Organization (WHO). The Global Initiative took place in three regions: Southern Africa, South-East Asia, and Central and Eastern Europe. The project was run in eight selected countries, namely the Republic of Belarus and the Russian Federation in Central and Eastern Europe; the Republic of the Philippines, the Kingdom of Thailand and the Socialist Republic of Viet Nam in South-East Asia; and the Republic of South Africa, the United Republic of Tanzania and the Republic of Zambia in Southern Africa. Because of practical difficulties, the project sites in the Philippines and Viet Nam were excluded from the overall evaluation of the outcomes of the Global Initiative

The overall aim of the project was to prevent and reduce the use of psychoactive substances and related problems among young people (persons between approximately 7 and 24 years) through the mobilization of communities and the development and sharing of good practices on primary prevention. Community mobilization was central in ensuring the cultural relevance/acceptability and sustainability of the prevention actions.
