PUTRAJAYA, 8 July 2022 – The National Anti-Drugs Agency (NADA) paid a courtesy call on the Director General of the National Youth and Sports Department, Tuan Mohd Azhari Mohammad and a delegation at the Ministry of Youth and Sports Malaysia Tower here recently.

In the course of the one-hour meeting, NADA under the direction of Dato’ Dr. Muhamad Sade Mohamad Amin, NADA Deputy Director General (Operations), covered a number of topics to fortify the two sides’ current strategic partnership.

Several topics were covered, including fresh tactics and initiatives for helping young people who are struggling with drug abuse.
