Title: Comparing Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test AUDIT with Timeline Follow Back TLFB DSM 5 and Phosphatidylethanol PEth for the assessment of alcohol misuse among young people in Ugandan fishing communities
Abstract: Validated tools for assessing alcohol use among young people in low-income countries are needed to estimate prevalence and evaluate alcohol-reduction interventions. We validated Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test (AUDIT) against Timeline Follow Back (TLFB), Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5) and phosphatidylethanol (PEth); and the 30-day-AUDIT against the 12-months-AUDIT among young Ugandans.
