EVENT: Post-GAPC Event: Vital Role of Youth in the Advocacy for Alcohol Prevention and Control

Adolescents and youth are a powerful catalyst for change within society through being a natural partner for preventing NCDs. The WHO estimates that 70% of premature deaths in adults are the result of behaviors begun during adolescence and youth, such as a significant 13.6% of adolescents partaking in heavy episodic alcohol use. In addition, youth are disproportionately affected by alcohol, especially harm from others’ alcohol use.
Our side-event aims to provide youth with the advocacy tools to address their governments and decision-makers to take urgent action for the prevention of early initiation and onset of alcohol use and wider alcohol harm, such as effective legislative measures regarding alcohol taxation and pricing policies, alcohol advertising, promotions and sponsorships, and alcohol availability as well as other cost-effective interventions that help protect children, adolescents and youth…

EVENT: Pre-GAPC Event: Alcohol Policy As Catalyst For The SDGs

Alcohol is a major obstacle to development. The alcohol industry is a significant vector of under-development, including social, health, environmental and economic harm. Alcohol is in fact adversely affecting 14 of 17 Sustainable Development Goals, curbing across the entire Agenda 2030.
This also means that the benefits of addressing alcohol as obstacle to development are substantial in multiple policy areas. In fact, evidence shows that evidence-based alcohol prevention and control holds.
This pre-conference side event seeks to deepen the understanding of how and to what extent alcohol and the alcohol industry are hindering sustainable human development; the event further aims to provide space for discussion to learn from local examples of alcohol as obstacle to development and of concrete actions to solve these problems; the third goal of this event is to explore evidence-based solutions and inspire action to help promote development through alcohol prevention and control…

NEWS: USA: The Crisis of Fetal Alcohol Syndrome

The USA is facing a crisis of fetal alcohol syndrome (FAS) with the rising level of addiction in the country. Despite this, political action to end FAS and other alcohol harms has been lacking across governments in the country.
The main fetal alcohol program at the federal mental health agency was discontinued in 2015. Since then there has been no constituency organized enough to get fetal alcohol syndrome back on the national agenda. The harm from FAS is however grave for the country causing billions of dollars, straining the criminal justice system, tearing up families — and causing disabilities that are largely preventable…
