Global status report on alcohol and health – WHO – 11 February 2011

“The newly published Global status report on alcohol and health analyses available evidence on alcohol consumption and provides data in over 100 individual country profiles.

Wider implementation of policies is needed to save lives and reduce the health impact of harmful alcohol drinking, says a new report launched today by WHO. Harmful use of alcohol results in the death of 2.5 million people annually, causes illness and injury to many more, and increasingly affects younger generations and drinkers in developing countries.

Harmful use of alcohol is defined as excessive use to the point that it causes damage to health and often includes adverse social consequences.”
