Advocating for effective alcohol policies
GAPA is a network of non-governmental organisations and people working in public health. Our goal is to reduce alcohol-related harm worldwide by promoting science-based policies independent of commercial interests.
GAPA Virtual Event 2022
GAPA will be organising a fully virtual event – the GAPA VE 2022 – over two days, 12-13 October 2022, across three time zones to enable participation from all parts of the world. Videoed key-note presentations will be shown in each time zone followed by a panel of invited speakers from each region. The first day will be the launch of Alcohol: no ordinary commodity, Third edition; and the second having a focus on cross border alcohol marketing.
Global policy process
On Friday 27 May, at the Palais des Nations in Geneva, the 75th World Health Assembly (WHA) adopted the Global Alcohol Action Plan, in the making for two years. GAPA welcomes the decision by the WHA.
The 7th Global Alcohol Policy Conference will be held 24 – 26 October 2023 in Cape Town, South Africa.
