CAMH research is influencing public policy on alcohol around the world

CAMH researchers help maintain the World Health Organization’s Global Alcohol Database, monitoring alcohol consumption, morbidity and mortality rates and trends from around the world, and we collaborate on the Global Status Report on Alcohol and Health. These important activities inform research and guide policy reform around the world.

This year CAMH researchers collaborated on several international research studies on alcohol. The studies demonstrated that consuming alcohol above daily recommended limits is linked to the development of several cancers; that culture and gender have a significant influence on the way people drink; and that increasing alcohol prices and restricting alcohol availability reduce harmful effects on health and saves lives.
