The Public Health Alcohol Bill will contribute to reducing suicide and self-harm in Ireland, and will complement priority actions of Connecting for Life, Ireland’s National Strategy to Reduce Suicide, 2015-2020. The Bill sets out measures that are long overdue: minimum unit pricing, strict separation of alcohol products in outlets, compulsory health-labelling on alcohol containers, restrictions on advertising and promotions and its goal is to reduce average annual consumption from 11 to 9.1 litres per person by 2020.

Implementing the Public Health Alcohol Bill will contribute to saving many lives in Ireland.
