Abstract: The purpose of this study was to investigate the family factors related to drinking among students of different genders in public middle schools in Uganda. A cross-sectional survey was conducted with a self-administered questionnaire to collect the spring consumption data in the first 12 months of the study. Among the 1591 students recruited, the overall prevalence of alcohol consumption was 17.3 (n   =   275), and men drank more alcohol (20.3 ). The results showed that unemployed heads of household (AOR) =   2.5, 95 confidence interval: 1.30-4.76,), quite pious (AOR =   2.7, 95 confidence interval: 1.08-6.49,), but non religious families (AOR =   2.9, 95 CI: 1.17 – 7.11,) were the factors related to liquor consumption. Early prevention of alcohol consumption can focus on male researchts, fathers’ occupation, and family religiosity. In addition, school administrators and authorities could consider these factors during routine school inspections to guard discipline among students in Uganda.
