Abstract

Harmful alcohol use is the leading casual factor in over 200 diseases and accounts for 3.3 million deaths annually. In recognition of the importance of alcohol control policies in reducing harmful alcohol use, the World Health Assembly enacted ‘the global strategy to reduce the harmful use of alcohol’ (WHO, 2010). Ten policy and intervention areas were provided to guide development, implementation and monitoring of alcohol control policies in WHO member states.
