The ICARA Webinar series on COVID-19 and ATOD research is being hosted by ICARA in collaboration with the University of Johannesburg. Each webinar has a different theme and will be organised by a different ICARA member organisation.

Themes include:

  • The impact of COVID-19 on ATOD research
  • Cannabis policy and the impacts of COVID-19
  • Substance use and gambling during the COVID-19 pandemic

The webinars will be of interest to researchers, practitioners and policy makers with an interest in alcohol and other drug use problems.
