S2 E2: Alcohol Policy and the WHO: What Happened at the Recent Executive Board MeetingPosted February 03 2022
More than 100 countries were represented by 27 statements made during the debate about the WHO draft global alcohol action plan at the Executive Board Meeting.
Following the discussion, the Executive Board decided unanimously to adopt the global alcohol action plan and recommend final approval at the World Health Assembly later this year.
