The Task Force on Anti-Drug Abuse and Education under the Iloilo City Anti-Drug Abuse Council (ICADAC) conducts symposium in private and public high schools and barangays in Iloilo City in its bid to heighten the awareness against illegal drugs.



“We started first with public high schools, but we don’t want to limit the activity there; this is a citywide campaign and everybody must be involved,” Mayor Jed Patrick E. Mabilog, chairperson of the ICADAC said.

Iloilo City is the only local government unit in the country with a Task Force actively dedicated to the fight against illegal drugs.




Speakers from the City Government, Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) and Iloilo City Police Office, discuss topics on Drug Situation per district, Reasons Why Young People Turn to Drugs, the Ill Effects of Illegal Drugs, and Salient Provisions of Republic Act 9165 or the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002.
