Club Health Dublin 2017 is the 10th International Conference on Nightlife, Substance Use and Related Health Issues. The event marks 20 years of Club Health conferences.
The very first Club Health conference took place in Liverpool, UK in 1997 and was held in the world famous Cream nightclub. Following the success of that conference, it became bi-annual and international with the next Club Health conference held in Amsterdam in 1999. Club Health conferences have since been hosted in Australia, North America and throughout Europe. The 10th International Conference on Nightlife, Substance Use and Related Health Issues will be held in Dublin, Ireland in May 2017.
Dublin was chosen because of its acclaimed and varied nightlife, the dedicated Organising Committee and the enthusiastic response to the initial proposal of the conference being held in the city by a wide range of key relevant stakeholders within Ireland. Given recent public and political debate on proposed harm reduction measures such as pill/drug-testing and decriminalization, pending legislative measures to reduce alcohol consumption, emerging challenges in relation to sexual health and the forthcoming Irish national drugs strategy, Dublin is exceptionally poised to both host and benefit from the Club Health Conference in 2017.
