The 5th annual meeting of Asian Association for Substance Abuse Research (AASAR) will take place on October 22-27, 2017 in several locations in Yunnan Province of China near the Golden Triangle, one of the most beautiful areas in the world but also a region historically known for rampant drug trade.

In addition to meeting sessions hosted in Kunming for scholarly presentations and reports, the association will also organize field trips to the border region between China and Myanmar for attendees to gain firsthand experiences of efforts made by government agencies to suppress drug trafficking activities and to prevent and treat drug abuse. The theme of this year’s meeting focuses on drug issues in the frontier regions of the “One Belt One Road” development. The conference will be held in both English and Chinese.
