Description:

IPH welcomes the opportunity to comment on Heads of the Public Health (Alcohol) Bill. International evidence supports these regulatory measures in addressing alcohol consumption and related harm. The World Health Organization has strongly endorsed the use of such public health legislation to regulate the availability of alcohol as a means to reduce alcohol-related harm (WHO, 2010). This Bill will have important implications in terms of addressing a wide range of alcohol-related harms and improving population health.
