About the product

Opiates originating in Afghanistan threaten the health and well-being of people in many regions of the world. Their illicit trade also adversely impacts governance, security, stability and development — in Afghanistan, its neighbours, the broader region and beyond. This publication covers worldwide flows of Afghan opiates, as well as trafficking in precursor chemicals used to turn opium into heroin. By providing a better understanding of the global impact of Afghan opiates, this Report can help the international community identify vulnerabilities and possible countermeasures.
