Sass, a transpinay and the first Filipino to receive the ECHO Award given annually to excellent migrant students in academic and higher professional education in The Netherlands, illustrate what the Duterte administration did on its first 5 months to address the illegal drug in the Philippines.
Watch the full video below:
According to the video, there are too few drug rehabilitation centers in the Philippines that President Duterte inherited from Noynoy Aquino.
And here are some of the things that the Duterte Administration did in its first 5 months to address this problem:
- On August 2, 2016, indigent addicts will get aid from DSWD and technical skills training from TESDA
- On October 11, 2016, Duterte signed Executive Order # 4 Creating an inter-agency Task Force for the establishment and support of Drug Abuse Treatment and Rehabilitation Centers throughout the country
- On November 27, 2016, the Department of Health will allot P570 million for the construction, upgrade, expansion and repair of 16 public drug rehab centers in the country
- On November 29, 2016, President Duterte inaugurated a mega drug rehab center in Nueva Ecija donated by a Chinese real estate billionaire with 10,000 capacity. That's 500% more than the bed capacity of the drug rehab centers Duterte inherited from the past administration
Now, who neglected the illegal drug problem of the Philippines?
