The ISSUP staff team met in June to discuss the coming months and updates to the website. The ISSUP team works remotely in different locations internationally so it is great to come together face-to-face to work on big developments and nuanced tasks.
The way in which ISSUP is growing was a focus point - we are seeing our membership and newsletter subscribers growing and growing which is fantastic to see! We are also moving forward with the development of National Chapters of ISSUP with ISSUP India now formally established as a National Chapter.
Also discussed was the upcoming ISSUP Workshop which will take place in December 2018. The 4th ISSUP Workshop will take place in Nairobi, Kenya and we have partnered with the National Authority for the Campaign Against Alcohol and Drug Abuse (NACADA) in Kenya and the African Union.
The workshop offers access to training, information and research to those involved in the substance use prevention and treatment field. Registration for the event will be opening soon with the varied training tracks announced. We look forward to seeing everyone there!
