Bangladesh forms drug testing institution

The Bangladesh government plans to create an independent organisation to carry out drug tests across the country. The drug tests will mostly be used for higher education admissions and in the transport sector. Students will be tested before admission to higher education and again before any final exams. Transport workers will be tested before, during and after long journeys. The tests will be called ‘special health examinations’ to avoid potential stigma associated with drug testing.
