GAPC 2017 wrap-up video with Michael Moore and Mel Stoneham

Alcohol harm experts share highlights of day one of the Global Alcohol Policy Conference 2017

Local and international experts gathered today in Melbourne for the first day of the Global Alcohol Policy Conference (GAPC) 2017 – a forum for policy-makers, practitioners and researchers.
GAPC 2017 maintains the tradition of focusing on advocacy, overcoming vested interests in alcohol policy development, and the need for international collaboration. Each day of the conference is distinct. The plenary sessions, workshops and presentations have been providing attendees with opportunities to discuss their research and experience and how these can be applied to alcohol policy environments and reinvigorate efforts to reduce alcohol-related harm worldwide.
In today’s GAPC 2017 wrap-up video, alcohol harm experts Michael Moore, Chief Executive Officer of the Public Health Association of Australia, and Mel Stoneham, Director of the Public Health Advocacy Institute WA, talk about the day’s highlights, and give us insights into tomorrow’s program.

Editorial

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 national of importance.
