Global Alcohol Policy Conference in Bangkok in November
The Global Alcohol Policy Conference 2011 will take place in Bangkok, Thailand 28 - 30 November. Title: “From the Global Alcohol Strategy to National and Local Action”.
The conference will mark an important milestone for global alcohol control efforts following on from the endorsement of the WHO Global Strategy on Alcohol in 2010. The conference will bring together leaders from all over the world who are committed to working towards the development and implementation of effective alcohol policy free from commercial influence. It will provide an opportunity for policy makers, advocates, academics, and campaigners to share and exchange their knowledge and experience.
The conference will also be a platform for developing a truly global network and for discussing future efforts at the global level to reduce problems from alcohol. The conference aims at promoting evidence-based alcohol policy development and implementation through independent participatory public policy processes. It will also promote sharing of experiences and best practices in the alcohol policy process at all levels.
