Calling time: the nation's drinking as a major health issue

Working group project looking at the national consumption of alcohol, the evidence that this is a major determinant of harm and the opportunities for effective public health intervention that follow from this.

Launched

In September 2003 a Working Group was convened to consider a National alcohol harm reduction strategy.

Working Group meetings were attended by observers from stakeholder organisations. A draft report was produced in January 2004 and was submitted for Review in February 2004. It was published in March 2004.

The report focuses on the overall national consumption of alcohol, the evidence that this is a major determinant of harm and the opportunities for effective public health intervention that follow from this. It concludes that the scientific evidence indicates that, for the health of the public, action is required to reduce consumption of alcohol at a population level.
