Briefer on the Launching of “Buboy”

The Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA), through the Preventive Education and Community Involvement Service (PECIS), has been continuously undertaking efforts to reach various sectors of the society with the aim of promoting the anti-drug campaign. However, a specific sector remained marginalized and unreached by the government’s advocacy against drugs- the deaf and hard of hearing community. Their specific disability places the deaf and hard of hearing individuals in a vulnerable situation that exposes them to higher risk of drug abuse.

Former PDEA Director General Undersecretary Arturo G. Cacdac, Jr. tasked PECIS with the assistance of PDEA National Capital Regional Office, to produce an anti-drug educational video specifically for the deaf and hard of hearing community.  This is in conformity with the Agency’s strategic direction in enhancing operational capability through the formulation and implementation of specialized programs for vulnerable groups.

PDEA’s first anti-drug advocacy for the deaf and hard of hearing is an off-shoot of the re-entry project submitted by Renante Rosero to the Development Academy of the Philippines, entitled “National Drug Prevention Program for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing”. The educational video was produced in cooperation with the Special Education Department of Lagro High School. The Agency intends to present this anti-drug educational video to UNICEF (United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund) and UNODC (United Nations on Drugs and Crime).

Through this material, PDEA hopes to empower the deaf and hard of hearing individuals against the lures of dangerous drugs by informing, influencing, instructing and instigating them to desired action using an approach that they understand best- visual stimulation.

The anti-drug educational video for the deaf and hard of hearing entitled, “BUBOY”.
