PDF (Handbook for action to reduce alcohol-related harm) - Published Version

This handbook is designed primarily for people working in health ministries or who are responsible at the regional or municipal level for developing strategies and actions plans to reduce alcohol-related harm.

The handbook begins by setting out the infrastructure needed for an effective action plan on alcohol. It then describes 10 areas for effective action: alcohol pricing, availability, marketing, illegally and informally produced alcohol, drink–driving, drinking environments, health care interventions, public awareness-raising, community and workplace action, and monitoring and evaluation. For each area, the handbook outlines strategies, lists questions to consider, offers options for action, lists partners for action and provides a short bibliography of tools and supporting materials.
