In May 2010 the Global Strategy to Reduce the Harmful Use of Alcohol was approved by Member States at the 63rd session of the World Health Assembly in Geneva. A major goal of the Strategy is to support and complement public health policies in Member States. The Strategy recognises that harmful use of alcohol can be reduced if effective actions that are based on current scientific knowledge, available evidence on effectiveness and cost-effectiveness, experience and good practice, are taken by countries (World Health Organization, 2010). The Strategy, however, acknowledges that not all policy options and interventions will be applicable or relevant for all member states.
