Addis Abeba: The law of the lever says that if an appropriate fulcrum is found, then a small force is sufficient to lift a very heavy object - so heavy that it would be impossible to lift without the lever. The sever levers of effective prevention focus on tackling the youth problems especially in the context of the European youth. The study however provides an effective tool for making a similar survey in the context of Africa and more so in Ethiopia.
