Astana, Kazakhstan, 17 March 2016 – Experts from Poland presented and discussed with two local trainers a prevention programme addressed to parents and school children to be implemented in selected schools.
This activity is supported as part of the Prevention Component within the sixth phase of the Central Asia Drug Action Programme (CADAP 6), funded by the European Union and implemented by a Consortium from the Netherlands, Czech Republic, Poland and Germany.
Central Asia Drug Action Programme (CADAP Phase 6) represents continuity of the EU policy and long term engagement with Central Asian partners to help further strengthen their national policies in drug demand reduction.
Two trainers were intensively trained on the implementation of the prevention programme in schools. Accordingly, they were trained to conduct workshops for teachers who will be responsible for the implementation of both family-based and school-based prevention programmes.
Prevention Component of CADAP aims to support Central Asian countries in their drug abuse prevention programmes and actions employing the EU best practices and international standards. As a result, healthcare and social responses for tackling problem drug use in Central Asia will be increased by promoting social awareness and drug resistance skills further.
