Reply To: Reflect and discuss: Prevention strategies


    Due to high levels of Substance and alcohol abuse in my community, one of the prevention strategies that would work is on addressing harmful alcohol abuse and couples programme to increase understanding and good communication. Given that women still have less access to power and resources, a programme on economic and social empowerment and economic transfers would be of great help.
    others that would also work is on community mobilization and advocacy in order to change harmful cultural norms and practices that disempowers girls and women. Parenting programmes would also do in order to bring up a generation of men that respect girls and women and have a changed mindset.
