Webinar
Speaker: Professor Ingeborg M. Rossow

Alcohol consumption has tremendous effects on health and social problems, affecting both individuals and societies. An accumulating body of knowledge provides opportunities for implementation of evidence-based effective alcohol policies, including taxes and regulations, to curb the extent of these problems.

It is an honour to have Ingeborg M. Rossow with us to talk about a global perspective on alcohol consumption, harms, and effective policies. Dr. Rossow is a research professor at the Norwegian Institute of Public Health, with broad experience and expertise on studies on alcohol and other drugs, including health and social consequences and alcohol policies. She is a member of the WHO expert advisory panel on Drug Dependence and Alcohol Problems, and she has served on the United Nations advisory expert panel on international standards for drug prevention.

We are also very happy to have Dr. Joyce Sserunjogi Nalugya, specialist in child and adolescent psychiatry and PhD candidate, to present her research on school-age children’s experiences with alcohol in Uganda, and implications for prevention.

Spring webinar series

This webinar is part of the spring webinar series on global non-communicable diseases, organized by The Global Non-Communicable Diseases (NCD) team at the Norwegian Institute of Public Health. The seminar series will take place on a monthly basis from February until June in the form of one-hour events with a guest lecturer.

Norway was the first country to launch an international development strategy on NCDs -Better health, better lives (pdf) - which positions Norway at the forefront in expanding work on NCDs in low-income countries. In line with the strategy, the Norwegian Institute of Public Health aims to cooperate with relevant actors and institutions with public health functions, to combat NCDs.
