7th Global Alcohol Policy Conference (GAPC) 2023

The Southern African Alcohol Policy Alliance South Africa (SAAPA SA) is excited to be the official co host of the 7th Global Alcohol Policy Conference (GAPC) 2023, that will be taking place from 24 – 26 October in Cape Town.

GAPC is the leading forum for the world’s alcohol policy makers, advocates, researchers, civil society activists and practitioners. With its high levels 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 is an ideal venue for discussions on alcohol policy to take place.

The conference theme is: Investing in people before profits: building momentum towards the Framework Convention on Alcohol Control.
