Research made by Rwanda Military Hospital and the National University of Rwanda on drug abuse management shows that there is need to educate families which still consider the rehabilitation of their children as punishment.
The steering committee is paving way for a substantial method that will reduce or eradicate the use of drugs and other behaviours that endanger the Rwandan youth.
