Drug/Substance abuse and Sexuality

Today's Lesson

This lesson deals with an emerging problem in many African societies- that of drug and substance abuse. Drug and substance abuse has a big relationship with youth sexual behaviour-influencing some of the adverse reproductive health outcomes among adolescents and youth in Ethiopia. Such outcomes include early entry into sexual activity, inability to use contraceptives in the event of sex with resultant consequences of early pregnancy and abortion.

This lesson aims at providing the general information on drug and substance abuse with specific focus on 'Chat' among other commonly abused substances in Ethiopia, the relationship between drug use and sexual behavior and the consequences of drug and substance use among the youth in Ethiopia.
