The 7th Global Alcohol Policy Conference will be held 24 – 26 October 2023 in Cape Town, South Africa. The topic for the conference will be “Investing in people before profits: building momentum towards the Framework Convention on Alcohol Control”.

GAPC is the leading forum for the world’s alcohol policy makers, advocates, researchers, civil society activists and practitioners. With its high level of heavy episodic drinking and related harms, and its long history of challenges in getting policy shifts in areas such as controls on alcohol marketing and retail sales of alcohol, South Africa will be an ideal venue in which to discuss alcohol policy and in which to host GAPC 2023.

See GAPC 2023 website for more information about the conference, abstract submission, and registration.
