Accelerating public health actions and addressing new challenges during the pandemic
The Alcohol, Drugs and Addictive Behaviours (ADA) Unit, within the Department of Mental Health and Substance Use at WHO Headquarters organizes, for the third time, the WHO global Forum on Alcohol, other Drugs and Addictive Behaviours (FADAB).
The primary goal of FADAB is to strengthen partnerships and collaboration among public health-oriented organisations, networks and institutions to accelerate and sustain public health actions in a rapidly changing world.
It is estimated that about 25% of worldwide alcohol consumption is unrecorded. Unrecorded alcohol may contain toxic ingredients that could lead to poisoning and even death. Addressing the phenomenon of unrecorded alcohol involves sectors such as health, finance, economic development and agriculture. Policies options to tackle unrecorded alcohol depend on how prevalent and normalized its consumption is in each country. This webinar seeks to shed light on the dimensions of the unrecorded alcohol phenomenon and showcase country practices, their challenges and possible policy responses.
