Concept

Vital Strategies started this weekly discussion space for people who want to reimagine public health so that it’s the center of commerce, social and civic life. These discussion are for anyone who wants to learn about different areas of public health, to listen to and share different perspectives. There is a different focus topic each week, connecting to the big picture.

This power hour will cover;
  • The state of alcohol control globally, with an emphasis on orienting our public health audience towards the scale of the problem;
  • The SAFER package of interventions; 
  • The role of industry in promoting alcohol use and blocking progress; and
  • Examining real-world progress and challenges in Scotland, Sri Lanka and elsewhere.
