Advocating for effective alcohol policies
GAPA is a network of non-governmental organisations and people working in public health. Our goal is to reduce alcohol-related harm worldwide by promoting science-based policies independent of commercial interests.
GAPA joins 106 community and public health leaders from 60 countries and six continents calling on the World Health Organization to stop its closed-door meetings with alcohol lobbyists.
GAPA welcomes the third edition of Alcohol: No Ordinary Commodity, written by an international team of addiction scientists and representing more than a decade of new research, explaining why alcohol policy is needed, how it is made, and the impact it has on health and well-being.
The new initiative launched to address neglected global health crisis of alcohol harms is supported with a $15 million philanthropic award that doubles existing global funding. RESET Alcohol will work in fifteen countries primarily in Latin America, Africa, Asia.
The GAPA VE 2022 was held 12-13 October 2022, over two days, three time zones and six sessions with the launch of Alcohol: No Ordinary Commodity, Third edition; and a focus on cross border alcohol marketing. Video keynote presentations are now available.
