iii. Strengthen the capacity of trainers to appropriately train undergraduates and postgraduates on the relevance and challenges of implementing the National Drug Policy;
iv. Develop in-service training programmes to address on-the-job requirements in the implementation of the policy;
v. Encourage statutory councils and boards of health professions to give prominence to the implementation of relevant aspects of the National Drug Policy in their continuing education programmes as a basis for periodic renewal of licenses; and
vi. Promote cooperation with foreign governments, research institutes and relevant international agencies such as the World Health Organisation and the United Nations Office for Drug Control & Crime Prevention [UNODCCP] for the purpose of enhancing human resources development for the efficient implementation of the National Drug Policy.
