EASL welcomes the OECD report on Tackling Harmful Alcohol Use

By EASL May 12,2015

“The harms caused to people other than drinkers themselves, including the victims of traffic accidents and violence, but also children born with foetal alcohol spectrum disorders, are the most visible face of those social consequences. Health care and crime costs, and lost productivity, are further important dimensions. These provide a strong rationale for governments to take action against harmful alcohol use” (Executive Summary from the OECD Report 2015: Tackling Harmful Alcohol Use – Economics and Public Health Policy).
