Alcohol, health and well-being

“Every year harmful use of alcohol is responsible for 3 million deaths and 5% of the global health burden ̶ from road traffic injuries, violence, abuse and neglect to diseases like liver cirrhosis and some cancers and mental health conditions like alcohol dependence, depression and suicides.

This animated video shows solutions to the impact of the harmful use of alcohol through the stories of two fictional countries: one where WHO’s “Global strategy to reduce the harmful use of alcohol” and the SAFER Initiative have been implemented and one where they have not.”
