A barangay in Mandaluyong City has already been cleared of illegal drugs, the local government announced on Nov. 25, according to a report by Manila Bulletin.

The Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA), the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG), the Department of Health (DOH), and the Philippine National Police (PNP) certified that Barangay Namayan is now drug-free.

Mandaluyong City Mayor Menchie Abalos together with representatives from the national agencies lauded the leadership of Barangay Chairman Dondon Francisco for clearing his area of illegal drugs.

PDEA has created a working group to closely monitor the nationwide implementation of the Barangay Drug Clearing Program (BDCP) designed to curb the proliferation of illegal drugs in the communities.

Under the program, law enforcement agencies take care of supply reduction efforts to disrupt the manufacture and distribution of dangerous drugs, while government agencies and local government units (LGUs) focus on demand and harm reduction strategies to prevent people from taking and wanting illegal drugs, and reform drug offenders to become productive citizens.
