The Commonwealth Association-Uganda (CPAUG@10) WITH SUPPORT FROM THE National Drug Authority (NDA) has since 2013 been facilitating and participating in our health promotion campaigns in secondary schools in Uganda in the districts of Mbale, Wakiso and Kabarole and its on this premises that we are now proposing a National Symposium on substance and drug abuse targeting the out and in-school youth, the musicians, civic and religious leaders in KCCA through the C-HEALTH Initiative of CPAUG@10 an initiative that started in 2014 that aims to engage a wide participation and acceptance of the underlying challenges to Uganda’s transformation process from the health and youth perspective. The event is expected to attract between 200-600 participants for a period of three months(September, October and November) in Central Uganda.
The purpose of this activity is to continue the campaign and compliment NDA’s ongoing work on creating awareness among the youth in and out of school about the need to engage and have them participate in the campaign against substance and drug abuse in Uganda. Other partners will include selected media houses, the ministry of Health and the Uganda Performing Rights Society (UPRS).
