Urgent action is needed by governments to control the marketing, labelling and availability of alcohol given the growing evidence about the burden of disease and premature mortality associated with alcohol use.

Alcohol is a global health issue. The sources of the harm (especially in the form of global alcohol industry conduct) cross borders, and the potential solutions to these problems increasingly require international innovation and solidarity through global governance. Yet alcohol is the great exception among problematic psychoactive substances in not being covered by any public health-oriented international drug control conventions.

Join us at this public event to hear from leading international alcohol policy experts as they examine:

  • Options for the future global governance of alcohol
  • Australia’s role in the global governance of alcohol

Registration is essential, places are strictly limited.
