The forthcoming ISSUP, ICUDDR, NRC and INL Conference and Workshop takes place from 12-16 May in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, and is the drug demand reduction conference of 2022. 

The Conference celebrates the commitment of ISSUP and partners to sharing knowledge across geographical boundaries and builds on our mission to establish substance use prevention, treatment and recovery support as a unique and multidisciplinary field globally.

There is a choice of ways to participate. The event consists of three days of virtual and in-person Conference alongside five days of in-person trainings and workshops. A full virtual programme will run for the duration of the event giving access to live Conference sessions and recorded presentations from around the world.
