Share the facts, save lives: World Drug Day

Posted: Saturday, June 26, 2021. 3:06 pm CST.

By Zoila Palma: Today, the Ministry of Health and Wellness joins in observing International Day Against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking, or World Drug Day.

The day is being observed under the theme, “Share Facts on Drugs. Save Lives.”

Commemorated annually on June 26, the day is set aside to strengthen actions and cooperation in achieving the goal of a world free of drug abuse.

This year’s theme stresses the importance of awareness of the facts on drugs, their dangers, and evidence-based prevention, treatment, and care.

Minister of Health and Wellness, Michel Chebat calls on all Belizeans to join the ministry to provide community support to those addicted to substances.

“Take action against substance and alcohol abuse by being a good role model to empower young people to deal with life challenges thereby reducing substance abuse; partner with the government by volunteering and supporting drug prevention and rehabilitation programs to increase access to information for affected individuals and communities,” a statement from the ministry said.

The National Drug Abuse Control Council (NDACC-Belize) provides for the establishment of programs for the prevention and treatment of drug dependency in our country.

Activities including satellite booths and informational fairs that provided facts and support for the public were conducted during the past week.

The ministry reminds Belizeans that tackling the global drug problem is a collective responsibility.
