The Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) said Tuesday, Feb. 16, that it has formulated a mission of championing the reduction of drug-affectation through the implementation of the Barangay Drug Clearing Program (BDCP) that integrates supply, demand and harm reduction strategies.
PDEA Director-General Wilkins Villanueva explained that BDCP is the main framework of the agency’s anti-drug strategy that embodies a holistic and whole-of-nation approach in addressing the country’s drug problem.
Under the scheme, Villanueva noted that the local government units (LGUs), other agencies and various stakeholders are given larger roles in the national anti-drug campaign.
With the “new strategic road map’’, Villanueva expects to have self-policing and drug-resistant communities by 2030 in the next 10 years.
The agency presented the organizational outcome, vision, mission, core values and the strategic perspectives and objectives under the “PDEA Strategic Direction 2021-2030” to achieve its goal.
Since it aims to minimize “drug affectation” in the country in the next decade, PDEA said it has updated its vision to “By 2030, we will have drug-resistant and self-policing communities”.
“The organizational outcome of PDEA is to reduced drug-affectation in the country, seeing to it that no illegal drugs can thrive in the barangays through vigilance and commitment in fighting the drug menace,” ended.
