Club Health Lisbon 2015

Club Health Lisbon 2015 is the 9th International Conference on Nightlife, Substance Use and Related Health Issues. The event marks over 15 years of international 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, a decision was made to make the event international, and the next Club Health conference was held in Amsterdam in 1999. Events have since been held in Australia, North America and throughout Europe. The 9th International Conference on Nightlife, Substance Use and Related Health Issues will be held in Lisbon, Portugal.

Lisbon was chosen because of its acclaimed and varied nightlife and progressive drug and health-oriented nightlife policies.
