Drug and substance abuse: a threat to vision 2030,every community's responsibility.
We joined Ministry of Youth, Sport, Art and Recreation and other government departments and stakeholders in conducting an Anti-Drug and Substance Abuse Campaign in Mt Darwin District. Drug and substance abuse continues to destroy millions of lives worldwide and a lot of developmental potential is being lost due to the increased misuse of substances like crystal m**h, w**d, over-the-counter medication, alcohol, to mention a few. Drug and substance abuse is also implicated in most of the challenges affecting young people today including s*xual and gender based violence, transmission of STIs and HIV and teenage pregnancies
It is the responsibility of everyone to ensure we safeguard the future of young people by doing all we can to reduce and eliminate drug and substance misuse in our communities.
