6.22 HUMAN RESOURCES DEVELOPMENT

Well-trained and experienced professional, managerial, technical and other personnel are necessary for planning, organising, and implementing the National Drug Policy. Government shall, therefore, take the following actions:

i. Expand the facilities in the universities and award scholarships for the training of pharmacists and other relevant professionals required for the successful implementation of the National Drug Policy;

ii. Ensure constant review of pharmacy, medical, and veterinary surgeon curricula, in cooperation with the relevant professional regulatory bodies and the National University Commision (NUC), to reflect the needs of drug policy implementation;

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.
