Symposium – Tackling cheap alcohol: policies to target products associated with high rates of harm

A forum for local, national and international policy practitioners, policy-makers, researchers, GAPC2017 attendees, government officials
3 October 2017, 65 Queens Road, Albert Park, VIC

The increasing availability of cheap alcohol across the globe is cause for concern. Evidence shows the lower the price of alcohol, the higher the levels of consumption and in turn higher rates of harm. Put simply, when it comes to reducing alcohol harm, price matters.

Join international and national experts to discuss the latest evidence of pricing policies and how public health practitioners use this research to frame messages to advocate for policies targeting cheap alcohol.

This is a free event hosted by the Institute of Alcohol Studies (IAS) and the Foundation for Alcohol Research and Education (FARE).  It is also a pre-event symposium for the Global Alcohol Policy Conference (GAPC2017).

You can register for the event at the GAPC2017 conference website today.
