Zimbabwe has joined the rest of the world in commemorating the Global Day of Action Against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking.


The celebrations which were held in Harare on Thursday focused on how Zimbabwe can come up with solutions to an increase in drug abuse among the youths as well as curbing illicit drug dealings within the country.

The Health Advisor in the President’s Office, Dr Timothy Stamps, who was the guest of honour at the celebrations, said it is important for Zimbabwe to focus on preventive drug abuse methods.

“We need drastic action to curb such a problem in the country,” said Dr Stamps.

Dr Stamps said it is also the role of the private sector to help the government on policy formulation relating to the reduction of drug trafficking in the country.

The celebrations were also held at a time when government is mobilising resources to facilitate drug abuse education within the country.
