WHO Europe: New Alcohol Country Fact Sheets

The WHO Europe launched 30 new fact sheets for EU Member States, Norway and Switzerland. The fact sheets present data on consumption, harm and policy implementation for the year 2016, aiming to give guidance to national decision-makers for further priority-setting in the field of alcohol and public health.

For each country the fact sheets contain:

  • Trends in alcohol consumption,
  • Alcohol consumption and alcohol-attributable harm, with special attention to young people,
  • Implementation of key alcohol control policies, including the three WHO “best buys” – price increase, limits on availability and bans on advertising of alcohol.

This allows for a quick overview of important subsets of alcohol policy measures that will support countries to assess their own progress towards reducing the burden of noncommunicable diseases and their key risk factors.

The fact sheets also present, for the first time, an individual overview of the composite indicator scores of the 10 areas of action to reduce the harmful use of alcohol.
