Islamabad: March 03, 2021

Minsitry of Narcotics Control under its Drug Demand reduction campaign conducted a drug awareness programme at Quaid e Azam University. The Ministry is working on its three tier policy in order to combat the menace of drugs, this includes drug demand reduction, drug supply reduction and International cooperation to eradicate drug abuse and smuggling. Under the first tier of its devised policy, the Ministry representatives visit various educational institutions to create awareness. The campaigns include interactive sessions, distribution of pamphlets highlighting the deadly consequences of drug abuse, seminars and other similar activities that are intended to discourage the youth from drug consumption. The campaign is designed around the idea that decrease in demand will consequently help in supply reduction and can act as a catalyst in achieving the goal of a drug free society. The representative of the Ministry of Narcotics Control, Mr. Masood ur Rehman interacted with students and sensitized them regarding drug abuse. The Ministry is primarily focusing on youth considering the unfortunate high level of drug indulgence in teenagers and youngsters. Ensuring the safety of youth is securing the future of country and progress in right direction for stable, healthy and drug free Pakistan for our generations to come.
