dc.descriptionRegional Committee for Africa Fifty-seventh Session Brazzaville, Republic of Congo, 27–31 August 2007: Provisional agenda item 7.12en
dc.description.abstractThe harmful use of alcohol in the African Region is increasing. The situation will worsen if appropriate action is not taken to address the problem. Episodic or binge drinking is a significant characteristic pattern of consumption, and estimated total deaths attributed to alcohol consumption show an important burden of mortality. 2. In 2006, a WHO technical consultation on the public health problems caused by the harmful use of alcohol recognized that alcohol-related problems are a serious public health concern in the African Region. 3. The approach to this problem in the African Region may benefit from the experiences and proven initiatives from other regions and worldwide. 4. This document provides an overview of the harmful use of alcohol in the WHO African Region; it also proposes perspectives for a way forward.en
