Ask the doctor: Does alcohol sponsorship belong in sport?

On the eve of the third and deciding State of Origin game, Dr Sandro Demaio, co-host of the ABC television show Ask the Doctor, the World Health Organization’s Medical Officer for non-communicable conditions and nutrition, and co-founder of NCDFREE, a global social movement against noncommunicable diseases, has a timely message for those concerned about alcohol sponsorship in sport.

On a flying visit to Canberra to attend and present at a preventive health event at Parliament House, we asked the doctor, does alcohol sponsorship belong in sport?

Drink Tank aims to generate meaningful commentary and debate about alcohol policy, and to provide a platform for all members of the Australian community to share their views and concerns.

Our goal is for the Drink Tank community to engage in robust discussion about alcohol, highlighting a broad spectrum of views and voices, and ultimately to raise the profile of alcohol as an issue of national importance.
