We are in a developing country where all the advanced educational policy & materials with stuffs are not available .When I returned from USA after completion a International visiting Program (IVP) on drug abuse in 1987, I started educational & awareness Programs in different medias including electronics & Printing on Tobacco & its hazards . Those program created a lot of sensation in the society which inspired me to go on this program which stills I am continuing later in 1989 , I formed one organization namely “ Association for the prevention of Drug Abuse –in short (MANAS) - (Bengali name ) with eminent film stars & singers of the country . For the last 20 years we are working with the Government of Bangladesh & different educational institutions where we are visiting regularly & conducting Seminar ,workshops &Symposiums on Tobacco use & hazards & its relation to drug abuse . For this outstanding contribution I received WHO “Tobacco or Health” Medal in 1998 & my Organization MANAS got the same in 1995. I have done lot of research work for my institute (BIRDEM HOSPITAL) which is a WHO Collaborating Centre & Presented my work in several national & International seminars for the last 20 years.
