UNDCP PROJECTS

Thailand


Figure

In Thailand, UNDCP and the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) are supporting activities aimed at educating Muslim adolescents on reproductive health, drug abuse prevention and HIV/AIDS.

The cartoon Goldtooth, developed by Street Kids International (S. K. I.), is a story about a boy named Karate and his sister Nina, who get involved with drugs and violence in the streets. Like street children everywhere, they must deal with men like the villain Goldtooth - pimps and drug dealers who promise happiness and feed on misery. As part of a joint UNDCP/UNAIDS project, the cartoon has been dubbed into twenty-five languages, and is currently being used in over 100 countries to educate vulnerable people on the dangers of drug abuse and HIV/AIDS.

At the same time, the project implemented media campaigns among the general public and trained teams of outreach workers to target out-of-school youth.
