ANNUAL NATIONAL SECONDARY SCHOOL COMPETITION ON DRUG ABUSE 2019

 

The Annual National Secondary School Competition is a signature of Drug Information Centre (DIC) of the Association of Community Pharmacists of Nigeria (ACPN).  The event which started in 2018 is aimed at addressing the menace of drug abuse in Nigeria at a vegetative stage and to mark the International Day against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking, celebrated on 26th of June every year. 

Being experts on drugs, Pharmacists are aware of the ubiquitous effects of drugs on users. This even becomes a huge concern when these drugs are not used as prescribed, intended or indicated.

According to a survey carried out by the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) in certain parts of Nigeria among secondary school students, a staggering 22.1 percent of private school and 15.3 percent of public school of the total students sampled confessed to have abused drugs.

We believe relating with these secondary school students, raising awareness on the consequence of drug abuse will help to stem this descending journey and keep their eyes glued on the beautiful future ahead them.
