The sub-region of Karamoja has the highest percentage of alcohol consumers in Uganda. The Diocese of Moroto, in Karamoja, started implementing a project against alcoholism. The method is to collect evidence based data on alcohol abuse, to do sensitisation of the communities, and to perform advocacy and policy influencing with the local authorities. There is also a component of rehabilitation of alcoholics. Although presently it is difficult to propose solutions to the problem of alcohol abuse, the results of the general approach of Moroto Diocese look encouraging.
