Hontiveros to Present Alternative Strategy to Country's Drug Problem

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Akbayan Senator Risa Hontiveros will file on Monday (February 6, 2017), 10:00 am a bill that pushes for a Barangay Health and Rehabilitation Strategy that seeks to replace the suspended Oplan Tokhang in the campaign against illegal drugs. A press briefing will follow at the Sumulong Room, 2/f, Senate of the Philippines.

Together with representatives from the World Health Organization (WHO), health and harm reduction advocates, and barangay leaders, Hontiveros will draw attention to her proposed measure that aims to provide a comprehensive public health approach to the country’s drug policy and establish appropriate barangay-based programs and services for drug-related issues and concerns.

With the suspension of the abusive and corrupt-prone Oplan Tokhang, Hontiveros said that there is a need for a new strategy that is humane, rehabilitative and less susceptible to abuse.

The event will also feature accounts from barangay leaders who will attest to the effectiveness of Hontiveros' alternative strategy, which is currently being implemented with relative success in several barangays all over the country.
