Abstract
Alcohol is an important feature in Africa, but is increasingly associated with negative consequences in the Sub-Saharan region (Adelekan, 2008; WHO, 2014). Recent studies marked Uganda as a country with the highest rate of alcohol-related burden, globally (Graham et al., 2011). In Uganda, prevalence of alcohol use disorder (AUD) is estimated at 9.8% (Kabwama et al., 2016) and some documented consequences to alcohol misuse include the spread of HIV/AIDS (Uganda AIDS Commission, 2007), various somatic and psychiatric disorders, physical disabilities (Affinnih, 2002), family breakdown, non-communicable diseases, poverty, violence, and crime (Tumwesigye & Kasirye, 2005). According to WHO (2014), 5% of the mortality is directly attributed to alcohol. However, supply and demand reduction strategies for alcohol use are hardly available in Uganda. The goal of this research is to advance knowledge about AUD and its treatment in Uganda, as a case study of the situation in Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA).
