and AIDS (HIV infection) are the two biggest threats
to the existence of humankind. I am extremely pleased
to know that the Drug Abuse Information Rehabilitation
and Research Centre(DAIRRC) is organising an International
Seminar titled ”Hope 2000”, which would come out with
new concepts/approaches to tackle this burgeoning problem
and bring new hopes to the suffering millions.
I hope and believe that DAIRRC would organise many more
such programmes to create awareness among public and
I wish you all success in your endeavours.
Dr. C.P. Thakur.
Honourable Minister of Health and Family Welfare Government
