Although limited use may not be accompanied by serious consequences, prolonged exposure could lead to dependence, psychosis and other psychiatric disorders and physical conditions such as hypertension, cardiovascular complications, sexual dysfunction, hepatoxicity and reduced birth weight of infants born to khat-chewing mothers. The widespread use and its burden on health and economy has raised concerns in the Region, although the extent of the problem is not well assessed. Additionally, most countries do not have a clear policy and plan with regard to khat use, and therefore there is hardly any structured prevention and treatment plan in place to respond to the problem. This review presents a picture of the extent of the problem, elaborates on related existing research initiatives and international treaties, policies and health service provisions, and outlines best policy and programme interventions in khat-use countries.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:contributor>al'Absi, Mustafa</dc:contributor> <dcterms:alternative>Consommation de khat, dépendance, affections de santé mentale et troubles physiques associés : nécessité de s’attaquer à un risque croissant</dcterms:alternative> <dcterms:title>Khat use and related addiction, mental health and physical disorders : the need to address a growing risk</dcterms:title> <dcterms:issued>2017</dcterms:issued> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2017-07-11T07:58:45Z</dc:date> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/39545"/> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
