GAPC2020 will be co-hosted by the Global Alcohol Policy Alliance (GAPA) and the Department of Health in association with their partner organisations, The Health Service Executive, Alcohol Action Ireland, the Institute of Public Health, the Irish Heart Foundation, the Royal College of Physicians in Ireland and the Irish College of General Practitioners.

Abstracts for GAPC 2020 – deadline 29 July 2019

The Scientific Advisory Committee of GAPC2020 now invites abstract submissions from researchers and practitioners for a range of presentation types including oral presentations, workshops, table-tops and posters. Abstract Submission closes midnight Monday 29th July 2019.

Practitioners are, in particular, encouraged to submit abstracts. ‘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.

GAPC  2020’s focus is to build bridges between evidence, advocacy and alcohol control policy formulation and implementation. Priority will be given to presentations that offer critical or reflective comment rather than purely program or descriptive papers.

Previous conferences have also focused on advocacy, overcoming vested interests in alcohol policy development, and the need for international collaboration. GAPC 2020 will maintain this tradition with an overall focus on alcohol and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
