Maldives is experiencing a growing drug problem among its youth. According to health professionals and available reports, more than half of the young living in the Maldives, are turning to drugs. As per anecdotal evidences available, there are approximately 30,000drug users in the Maldives. Also, young drug users are switching from smoking to injecting drugs which could fuel a rise in HIV and AIDS in the Maldives, where cases have remained historically low. Additionally, the prison authorities in the Maldives report that over80 percent of the prison inmates require drug treatment. To effectively deal with drug use, UNODC signed with the Government of Maldives, its first ever country-specific technical cooperation project, called “Strengthening the national response to combat drug abuse in the Maldives’, funded mainly by the European Union.The signing ceremony took place on 19 January 2010at the Ministry of Finance and Treasury, Government of Maldives, where Mr. Ali Hashim, Minister of Finance and Treasury, Mr. Abdul Bari Abdulla, Minister of State for Health and Family, Government of Maldives, and Ms.Cristina Albertin, UNODC Representative for South Asia signed the project document. The project will provide technical assistance to strengthen the national response on drug use prevention and treatment through a series of capacity-building measures both with the Government and the civil society in the framework of the United Nations Development Assistance Framework. UNODC looks forward to this new cooperation project in support of the Maldivian society.
