An alcohol policy alliance for Southern Africa under formation
An initiative to establish a Southern Africa Alcohol Policy Alliance has been taken. An interim board was elected at a meeting in Kampala.
In the end of November 2010 NGO representatives from Southern and Eastern African countries met in Kampala, Uganda for a training of trainers session on evidence-based alcohol policies. Representatives from organisations in Namibia, Botswana, Malawi, Lesotho and South Africa used this opportunity to discuss the formation of an alcohol policy alliance for the region.
