  • Charles DH Parry

Abstract

This paper focuses on alcohol intervention strategies likely to be effective in a country like South Africa. It begins with an appraisal of the latest data on the burden of harm associated with the misuse of alcohol, globally, regionally and in South Africa. The main part of the paper comprises a critical analysis of a broad array of policy-relevant interventions to address the burden of alcohol on individuals and society. The paper ends with a listing of alcohol intervention strategies most likely to have the greatest efficacy for South Africa together with comments on issues relating to implementation of a national alcohol strategy.
