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.
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.
Global policy process
On Friday 27 May, at the Palais des Nations in Geneva, the 75th World Health Assembly (WHA) adopted the Global Alcohol Action Plan, in the making for two years. GAPA welcomes the decision by the WHA.
