The Geneva Platform on Human Rights, Health and Psychoactive Substances (called the Geneva Platform) launched in June 2017, is an initiative to bring together civil society organisations – NGOs, academia and networks representing affected communities – operating in the field of health, human rights and drug policy to share information between relevant actors and ensure the promotion of health and human rights in all drug-related questions addressed in Geneva.

The Platform aims to improve the quality of the debate on psychoactive substances in “International Geneva”, by organising conferences, discussions, and side-events at important meetings of United Nations agencies, held in Geneva. It also shares the most pressing psychoactive substances-related information with its membership.


The purpose of the Platform is to promote implementation-focused health and human rights dialogues and perspectives on national and international policies regulating the control, cultivation, manufacture, distribution, and consumption of psychoactive substances.
