Drinking into deeper poverty: the new frontier for chronic poverty in Uganda

Charles Lwanga-Ntale


This briefing note is the first in a series of briefing notes and policy briefs which will accompany an on-going study on the links between excessive alcohol consumption and chronic poverty in Uganda. The rationale for this note is to highlight the issue of excessive alcohol consumption, and its links to chronic poverty in Uganda. The note is aimed for a cross-section of development practitioners and policy makers, and it is intended to stimulate discussion, debate, and action. By bringing the issue into the public domain we hope to raise awareness and to invoke action on an issue which has, for long, been only considered to be a private matter for individuals.
