Report of the Evaluation Research on the Healthy School Programme with a Drug Testing Component in the 2015/16 School Year


Supported by the Beat Drugs Fund Association (BDFA), the Healthy School Programme with a drug testing component (HSP(DT)) has been promoted throughout the territory since the 2011/12 school year. The HSP(DT) aims to facilitate students to cultivate healthy lifestyles, develop positive attitudes and correct values, reinforce resilience, strengthen the resolve to stay away from drugs, and trigger the motivation of students in need to seek help and drug treatment. The programme comprises two major components, namely preventive anti-drug activities and school drug testing with the principle of voluntary participation.

In the 2015/16 school year, there were 92 secondary schools participating in the HSP(DT). The BDFA commissioned Policy 21 to conduct an independent evaluation research on the HSP(DT) in the 2015/16 school year, to assess the effectiveness of the programme and make recommendations on how to further promote and improve the programme.
