FARE comments on the Australian Labor Party’s National Platform Consultation Draft


The Foundation for Alcohol Research and Education (FARE) provided a submission with comments on the Australian Labor Party’s National Platform Consultation Draft.

The comments provided in this submission relate to sections within the National Platform concerning alcohol policy. FARE has also provided comment, along with the Public Health Association of Australia (PHAA), in relation to chronic disease and preventive health in a separate submission.

FARE makes a number of suggested amendments focusing on areas of opportunity for Labor to continue their focus on preventive health and reducing alcohol-related harms across the community.

The titles and sections used in this document are the same as they appear in the National Platform Consultation Draft for ease of reference, and should be read in conjunction with that document.

FARE supports policy reforms that contribute to a reduction in alcohol-related harms in Australia. Our policy work is informed by the evidence of what is most effective in reducing alcohol-related harms. We support the progression of population-based health measures, which take into consideration the far reaching and complex impacts of alcohol-related harms.
