Cambodia Introduces 'NoDrug' App to Combat Drug Use Among Students

PHNOM PENH, April 24, 2024 — In an effort to stem the tide of drug use and trafficking, Cambodia has launched a new mobile application named 'NoDrug,' targeted primarily at students. The launch event took place at the BELTEI International School compound in Phnom Penh on April 23, overseen by Minister of Information Neth Pheaktra, who also chairs the Education and Dissemination Commission of the Anti-Illegal Drug Campaign.

The 'NoDrug' app aims to enhance public awareness about the dangers of illicit drugs and foster a more proactive and preventive approach within the community. It is designed to facilitate two-way communication between students and authorities, allowing users to ask questions, offer suggestions, and report drug-related incidents directly for immediate action.

Minister Pheaktra emphasized the app's role in empowering students to safeguard themselves, their families, and their peers from the perils of drug abuse. He also urged widespread community involvement in utilizing the app and bolstering efforts to enforce drug laws and promote the Safe Village Commune/Sangkat Policy.

The launch was attended by over 2,000 participants, including authorities, students, teachers, monks, and journalists, signaling a significant step forward in Cambodia's ongoing fight against drug abuse.
