Action to reduce the harmful use of alcohol: report of the Regional Director
Regional Committee for Africa, 58 ( 2008 )
Abstract

1. The disease burden attributable to harmful use of alcohol is significant at global level and in the African Region. Trends in globalization and international trade agreements make alcohol widely available and affordable for consumption. 2. Studies reveal a large proportion of drinkers in some countries in the Region, even among women. According to a WHO STEPS survey,1 large percentages of respondents in Cameroon (84%), Mozambique (77.2%) and Cote d’Ivoire (71%) had drunk alcohol in the previous 12 months. The same survey in the Democratic Republic of Congo in 2005 showed that in the previous 12 months only 53.7% of women reported not having drunk alcohol. 3. In 2000, harmful use of alcohol globally was responsible for 4.0% of the burden of disease and 3.2% of all deaths, almost as much overall damage to health as tobacco (4.1%) and high blood pressure (4.4%). In 2000 and 2002, the estimates of total deaths attributable to harmful use of alcohol in the African Region show a significant burden of 2.1% and 2.2%, respectively.2 4. In the last few years, increases in consumption and changes in drinking patterns among adolescents have been reported by countries in the Region. In 2004, the Global School-based Student Health Survey3 showed that 42.3% of Zambian adolescent students between 13 and 15 years old were current consumers of alcohol, and from those, 42.8%, had already been drunk at least once in their lives. In Namibia, 32.8% were current alcohol consumers and 31.8% had already been drunk.

Community action to prevent alcohol problems : papers presented at the third Symposium on Community Action Research, Florence, Italy, 25-29 September 1995
World Health Organization. Regional Office for Europe; Kettil Bruun Society ( 1999 )
Abstract

This compilation of papers is the result of the third international symposium on Community Alcohol Projects for the prevention of alcohol problems, which was held in Greve in Chianti (Florence), Italy, from 25 to 29 September 1995. It follows the symposium held in March 1989 in Scarborough, Ontario, and the symposium which took place in San Diego, California, in January-February 1992, both under the title of "Experiences with Community Action Projects for the Prevention of Alcohol and other Drug Problems". In keeping with the ideas of the previous symposia, the organizers of the Greve meeting encouraged participants to take a reflective and process-oriented stance. The following criteria were suggested: describe the community research project; present interaction of research and programme components; discuss process experience; analyse the problems or challenges encountered
