New Nepal research report launched
Youth RISE's Bikash Gurung and Nikhil Gurung undertook a research project looking at young people who use drugs and the state of ‘youth friendly’ services in the Nepal. They met young people who use drugs in 5 major districts in the 5 development regions of Nepal. Drug service organizations in those districts were also visited and key individuals interviewed.
The report addresses a number of key questions, such as; What is the initial age of drug use and what are main factors influencing a young person's drug use? What is the level of acceptance of young people who use drugs and what youth friendly services are implemented in Nepal? How well do drug related service organizations understand the needs of young people who use drugs in Nepal?
