“Alcohol Consumption and Harm in the Americas Region”

For this eighth episode we are bringing you an in-depth conversation with an inspiring guest and global leader for alcohol policy development and implementation, Maristela Monteiro. She is the Senior Advisor on Alcohol and Substance Abuse, in the Non Communicable Diseases and Mental Health department of the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO), headquartered in Washington, D.C., USA.
In the weekly alcohol issues update, we highlight three issues we think deserve special attention. In policy news we talk about the need to strengthen services for people with alcohol problems during the pandemic. In the science digest you get to hear about alcohol policy in former Soviet Union countries and its impact. And in the Big Alcohol Watch we discuss corporate capture of the government in the Northern Territory in Australia.
