Addiction Conference 2021


Lives and livelihoods in Africa are lost every day to a medical disorder of which the true extent and severity is unknown.

Addiction needs to be seen for what it is. Not as a weakness. Not as a lack of character. Not as something that needs to be punished.

Substance use disorder (SUD) is a diagnosable, treatable medical disorder and no country or company can afford to lose any more resources to ineffective, uncoordinated addiction treatment protocols. 

The ADDICTION 2021 Conference is a platform to create practical, evidence-based SUD solutions relevant to Africa by facilitating collaboration between:

  • doctors, psychiatrists, psychologists, nurses and other healthcare practitioners
  • pharmaceutical manufacturers and distributors
  • social work specialists
  • medical aid and managed care providers
  • hospital group owners and administrators
  • rehabilitation providers
  • academia and researchers
  • government officials from the departments of social development, health, education, justice, law enforcement and correctional services
  • non-profit organisations, faith-based organisations, community-based organisations and more.
