During a meeting in presence with Dr.Ghobabdidana, Head of SWO and UNDP Resident Representative in the Islamic Republic of Iran, Claudio Providas which was held on Wednesday 10th March, 2021 two sides accentuated on more cooperation in different areas. At the first of this meeting Head of SWO extends his appreciation from taken measures by united nation office in Iran to donate items needed during the outbreak of Coronavirus in our country in recent months and said that centers that operates as DICs or boarding centers for the addicts in some special places being running their plans in collaboration with UNFPA and I take this opportunity and thank them for their sincere cooperation and hope that these activates extend in different areas. Here are some of major viewpoints made by Head of SWO are as follows:

· One of activities which is operated by SWO about combating addiction is vocational training and job creation for the addicts in 31 provinces of our country and this year, more than 1000 people have been admitted to these centers also all of these centers are non-governmental and run by NGOs.

· State Welfare organization not only deals with harm reduction but also covers other aspects and in this regard there are more than 1,200 boarding accommodation centers along with harm reduction complexes.

· SWO in collaboration with UNFPA and UNDP has taken proper measures to help the homeless and has dispersed items needed to prevent corona virus including masks and sanitizers among them.

· Imposed cruelly sanction against our country has led to more harms to vulnerable groups including persons with disabilities to purchase rehabilitation equipment of older persons in recent years.

· Neighboring with Afghanistan and being in route of drug transition makes that narcotics be more accessible to our youth and in this line the anti-narcotics plans which are carried out in our country; it imposes a lot of costs on the country, than are both human and financial. If other countries do not help us to combat this matter these drugs will transit to Europe easily.

· State welfare organization during the coronavirus pandemic has taken timely actions in home care centers for older persons and disabled people across the country which rather than other countries taken measures by SWO has been more effective.
