Alcohol

This newsletter provides updates on recent alcohol research and policy relevant to Ireland and Northern Ireland. 

In the July edition there are a number of data and research publications, including the final evaluation report on minimum unit pricing of alcohol in Scotland, a recently published report on the impact of COVID-19 on people who use services and providers in Northern Ireland, as well an analysis of the relationship between addiction treatment data and geographic deprivation in Ireland. 

Also featured is an extensive range of alcohol policy and legislation resources which have been collated by the Health Research Board. The July newsletter also includes details of the Scottish ‘See beyond, See the lives’ anti-stigma campaign to encourage greater public awareness and compassion for those experiencing problems with substance use and their families.
