The INCB Annual Report, prepared in accordance with the international drug control treaties, examines the global drug control situation, and makes recommendations to Governments and regional and international organizations.

Acknowledging patterns of increasing drug use and drug dependence among older persons, the Board dedicates this year's report thematic chapter to this issue. 

The Report is accompanied by the Special Report: Celebrating 60 Years of the Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs of 1961 and 50 Years of the Convention on Psychotropic Substances of 1971.
