Drug prevention posters
Under the framework of project IRNI55 (Nation-wide Drug Prevention Measures in the Islamic Republic of Iran) 8 drug prevention educational posters with information on physical and psychological effects of different types of drugs have been published. The information provided in the posters include the effects of Opium, Heroin and Crack Heroin, Cocaine, Methamphetamine, Alcohol, Ecstasy, Cigarettes and Cannabis on human body and mind. The posters were designed for youth aged 15 to 19. Their main objective is to increase the awareness of the target group about the long term effects of different drugs and their related health problems. The posters were distributed among 31 provinces of the Islamic Republic of Iran, particularly in educational settings such as secondary and high schools as well as universities. They have been evaluated by their target group through questionnaires and focus group discussions. The results of the evaluation led UNODC to further tailoring the posters according to the needs of the target group. In order to achieve positive results the posters should be inserted in a broader drug prevention programme.
