The Alcohol and Drug Information Centre (ADIC) in Colombo put alcohol policies on the agenda during last years election campaign in Sri Lanka. 37 out of 40 "recommended" candidates got a seat in the Parliament.
ADIC is involved in information and campaigns in Sri Lanka on issues related to alcohol, drugs and tobacco prevention. Since the start in 1987 the centre has grown to become a national resource centre with a wide variety of activities. Public policy on these issues is one of the fields of work. During last years campaign for the Parliamentary election ADIC ran a campaign with posters, advertisements in the newspapers and leaflets.
