Country work

Individual country profiles have been prepared on the basis of 50 key indicators, in an attempt to give an overview of the current situation regarding alcohol and health in WHO Member States and to reflect the 10 target areas of policy measures and interventions recommended in the Global strategy to reduce the harmful use of alcohol and the European action plan to reduce the harmful use of alcohol 2012–2020.

The profiles are based on data collected in the Global Survey on Alcohol and Health, which was sent to all Member States in 2012. The profiles were approved by the respective governments as part of a country consultation process in the autumn of 2013.
