The WHO Secretariat held a web-based public hearing on the best ways to reduce harmful use of alcohol. Contributions to the public hearing could be submitted via a dedicated website or by fax in any of the six official UN languages.

GAPA was on of 340 contributors, including individuals, civil society groups, WHO Member States and government institutions, academic and research institutions, economic operators and other interested parties. In providing their contribution the participants were encouraged to focus on the following questions:

  • What are your views on effective strategies to reduce alcohol-related harm
  • From a global perspective, what are the best ways to reduce problems related to harmful use of alcohol?
  • In what ways can you or your organization contribute to reduce harmful use of alcohol?
