APFAD-WFAD @ Singapore was hosted by NCADA and WFAD during 7-8 November 2019.
The theme of the Forum was “Prevention through Partnerships and Community Action – for a World Without Drugs.
APFAD was established by NCADA to rally NGOs in the Asia Pacific region to support the drug-free cause. APFAD has been organised twice, in 2015 and 2017 with the intent to become the region’s equivalent of the World Forum Against Drugs, hosted and organised by the World Federation Against Drugs (WFAD). “This is the inaugural joint conference with WFAD for the Asia Pacific, co-branded as Asia Pacific Forum Against Drugs (APFAD-WFAD @ Singapore 2019). It is a platform for Asia Pacific NGOs and government agencies to network, share knowledge and exchange best practices on prevention and rehabilitation; and to re-affirm support for and encourage greater adoption of the APFAD declaration, as well as the green and white anti-drug ribbon as the international anti-drug symbol.”
