Secretary Benjamin P. Reyes, Chairman of the Dangerous Drugs Board led the Philippine delegation at the Special Segment on the Follow-up to the special session of the General Assembly on the world drug problem held on 30 November 2016 in Vienna, Austria.

Philip Josef Vera-Cruz of the Dangerous Drugs Board completed the Philippine delegation.


Secretary Reyes said that “the nation’s desire to win the war on illegal drugs is unwavering and we remain committed to our vision of a drug-resistant and eventually drug-free Philippines under the guidance of an integrated and balanced strategy.” In his statement, Secretary Reyes mentioned several activities of the government such as the flagship prevention program “Barkada Kontra Droga” (Peer-based Strategy against Drugs), the implementation of community-based interventions and the country’s recent entry to the UNODC and World Customs Organization (WCO) Container Programme which reflect this strong commitment.


In closing, Secretary Reyes underscored that the country’s relentless campaign against  illegal drugs is being waged  with firm adherence  to the rule  of law  and due process and to human rights principles, pursuant to the mandate of the  Philippine Constitution and to the country ‘s obligations, under  the international human rights treaties and covenants to which it is a state party.
