Building Momentum For The Prevention Of Alcohol-Related Harm In Uganda: Walk the talk

UAPC is the largest gathering of researchers, practitioners, advocates and policymakers working on alcohol policy in Uganda. The conference is sponsored by IOGT-NTO movement and organized by UAPA in partnership with Ministry of Health and Makerere University School of Public Health.

UAPC 2022’s focus is to build bridges between research/evidence and alcohol control policy formulation and implementation. The 1st conference held in November 2018 was dedicated to enhancing collaboration to overcome alcohol harm, while the second in 2020 focused on community participation in the eradication of alcohol harm. UAPC 2022 will hence go a step higher by supporting the momentum for the current alcohol legislative initiatives in Uganda.

Call for Abstracts

UAPC22 welcome submission of abstracts for presentations relevant to the conference topics and themes. 

We strongly encourage abstracts from both researchers and practitioners. ‘Practitioners’ include any professional working in research translation, policy, advocacy and communications. The focus of the conference is alcohol policy; abstracts that describe findings from alcohol epidemiology are welcome provided they include discussion of clear implications for policy.
Priority will be given to presentations that offer critical or reflective comment rather than purely program or descriptive papers. Papers will be accepted and considered in two domains:

  • Research: Clear design, presentation, analysis, outcomes.

  • Practice: Clear context, process, analysis, outcomes.

Presentation at UAPC2022 is not open to any person who has a conflict of interest due to financial relationships, direct or indirect, with the alcohol industry.
