The primary objective of the study is to determine the prevalence and consequences of drug and substance abuse within Harare, Zimbabwe. The study seeks to establish who from our communities is involved in drug and substance abuse, their socio-demographic background, when they started taking drugs, why they get involved, the types of drugs are available, their source or origin, cost of the drugs, challenges faced by drug users, and how they fund or sustain their drug habits among others. This study will provide the much-needed baseline data and evidence on this existing problem and the extent to which people especially youths are falling victims to drug and substance abuse. It is expected that the information generated would serve to inform all stakeholders interested in addressing drug and substance abuse challenges in Zimbabwe about the magnitude of the problem and its effects on society and public health with the aim of reducing the consequences of drug use such as fueling new TB & HIV infections.
