Staggering alcohol toll must be reduced to ensure a healthier NSW

As we head into summer and brace for the unwelcome but expected increase in alcohol consumption, the upcoming state election provides us with an opportunity to ensure our next government continues to work towards a plan to address alcohol harms.

The Coalition government deserves credit for the action it took in January 2014 to prevent alcohol-related violence, adopting some of the measures long advocated by the NSW and

ACT Alcohol Policy Alliance (NAAPA). So too, the Labor Party deserves recognition as the first party to commit to evidence-based policies to tackle the state’s heavy alcohol toll.
