In Togo young people under 25 account for 60 percent of the total population. They are particularly susceptible to drug and alcohol consumption. More than 50 percent of the male and approximately five percent of the female population practise binge-drinking (excessive consumption of alcohol in the shortest possible time). Motorcycle taxi drivers in Togo are among the most affected and also the hardest to reach youngsters. Alcohol and the prescription drug "Tramadol" are readily available amongst them. Accidents which endanger not only the drivers themselves, but also their customers and passerbys are the consequence. The programme in Togo is based on IBC's projects in Chad and the Republic of Congo which have both been very well received by the population and political decision-makers since 2013.
