The WHO European Region has a high level of alcohol consumption. This results in a substantial burden of alcohol-attributable mortality. The overall standardized rate for alcohol-attributable mortality in the Region rose between 1990 and 2014. 

This publication describes trends in alcohol consumption and attributable mortality. It gives data by country, showing huge differences. This underlines opportunities for countries to benchmark their standing against others’ and introduce policies to reduce the burden of alcohol-attributable mortality. It also underlines the overall need to further reduce the alcohol consumption in the WHO European Region.
