Events and Mobilizations
Transforming the Anti-Drug Advocacy through Mobilization
Learning on the ill-effects of dangerous drugs and the repercussion of violating the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act deepens the awareness of an individual. The DDB has employed multi-media strategy, espousing social networks to arrive at this end.
The Board sustains media cooperation by maintaining the DDB Press Corps composed of media practitioners from print and broadcast. This ensures covering a wider audience by pursuing press conferences and press releases of events and drug related articles, radio interviews, and TV appearances.
Two regular special events are also held to mobilize and enlist the participation of the general public.
International Day Against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking of Drugs (IDADAIT)
Every 26th of June, IDADAIT is being observed simultaneously in all member countries of the United Nations as per resolution signed during the UN General Assembly on December 07, 1987 and by virtue of Presidential Proclamation No. 264 dated June 1, 1988.
Drug Abuse Prevention and Control Week (DAPC Week)
The Drug Abuse Prevention and Control Week is annually observed simultaneously throughout the country every third week of November. Pursuant to Presidential Proclamation No. 124 on November 26, 2001, the third week of November has been declared as the Drug Abuse Prevention and Control Week (DAPC) Week. DDB spearheads the annual commemoration of this important event.
