Young people is our priority and education is our main target. A whole range of other issues lead to drug use, such as armed conflict and government instability making the country very vulnerable to drug use.
This has lead to a rise in HIV infections. The number of drug addicts has risen and we lack specialised facilities to treat them.
We appreciate the initiative by UNODC to support Africa’s growing drug issues. We need multi-sectoral aid in drug demand reduction.
