WHO Europe: New Report Highlights Need to Better Protect People From Digital Alcohol Marketing

Posted on December 08, 2021 in Europe

The World Health Organization Regional Office for Europe has released a new report, entitled “Digital marketing of alcohol: Challenges and policy options for better health in the WHO European Region”.
The remarkable report shows that the developing digital ecosystem is used by the alcohol industry to promote alcohol consumption and the associated health risks.
The publication lays out a series of policy options for consideration by WHO Member States, emphasising the need for a global and comprehensive approach, so as to put in place legislative arrangements that will be robust enough to offer protection in the future not only for children but for all people at risk of substance use disorders, wherever businesses are based and wherever content is accessed.
