New reports from the WHO on alcohol
The World Health Organisation has just launched two reports:
- Handbook for action to reduce alcohol-related harm which aims to assist policy makers to review plans to further reduce the harm caused by alcohol. The ten areas for action include pricing, availability and marketing.
- Evidence for the effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of interventions to reduce alcohol-related harm. The report reviews what is known and not known about the health, social and economic impact of a number of different interventions.
