Many affected people are in communities and others hospitalized over mental illness.This will be carried out in 5 regions of Uganda. If this problem is not solved Uganda will have a full generation of youth affected by the drug and the substance abuse and thus lowering the quality of our labour force.

This project is timely as there is an outcry in the whole country about thedangers of tobacco ,alcohol ,drug abuseand problem gambling between the age of 14-30.NCDC is in the period of reviewing the O'level curriculum and therefore this is an opportunity to integrate these issues in various subjects of national curriculum.
