Watch experts discussing policy solutions to alcohol-fuelled harm.
Everyone should be able to live in a community where they can live, work and raise children safe and free from harm. However, this opportunity is not afforded to many Australians who experience harms caused by alcohol. Each year, alcohol products are responsible for almost 6,000 deaths among Australians aged 15 years and older and more than 144,000 hospitalisations.
In its Policy Platform, the National Alliance for Action on Alcohol has outlined clear policy proposals that Australian governments can take to reduce alcohol-fuelled harm. Our governments must introduce proven measures that reduce the harms from alcohol products and keep people healthy and well.
We know what these measures are.
Now all that is needed is action.
