The need for a well-coordinated and widely accessible program of mental and substance abuse for young women in Liberia.

Published Jul 12, 2022

According to the OSIWA 2021 community and contextual study of drug use and drug policy in Liberia, between 10- 20% of young women in post-conflict Liberia take drugs such as cocaine in the form of crack, and heroin, tramadol, valium, and diazepam. However, little is understood about this essential topic, which has a substantial impact on health, an individual's well-being, families, relationships, and the post-war community. With the long-term health impacts and little understanding about drug use and smoking by teenagers and young women, we have discovered that tobacco-related mortality plays a significant part in the national burden of illness. We believe that there is a national need to develop and execute effective women-focused smoking reduction programs. Creating free and easily available assets for drug-addicted adolescents and women, as well as resources for life skills training, to enhance the livelihoods of drug-addicted adolescents and women in Liberia.
