International Consultancies

Prevention Contribution to the International Arena
Over the past years ADIC has become a well recognized resource centre providing its expertise in the field of alcohol, tobacco and other drug prevention to GOs, INGOs, NGOs and CBOs internationally. ADIC is requested to share its approaches regionally and internationally as these approaches are not conventional and traditional.

In the year 2011, ADIC provided consultancies internationally to develop community level approaches and effective policies on alcohol, tobacco and other drug prevention. ADIC also represented number of world forums, workshops and conferences.

We believe that this recognition and reputation stems from the innovative, sustainable, adoptable, practical and result proven models and methodologies developed over the last two decades.
