APPEAL TO GLOBAL HEALTH COMMUNITY

PLEASE CONSIDER ENDORSING THE ATTACHED “STATEMENT OF CONCERN” ABOUT THE INCREASING INVOLVEMENT OF THE ALCOHOL INDUSTRY IN PUBLIC HEALTH ACTIVITIES THROUGHOUT THE WORLD 

On October 8, 2012, thirteen of world’s largest alcohol producers issued a set of commitments to reduce the harmful use of alcohol worldwide.  The commitments were issued in support of the World Health Organization’s (WHO) Global Strategy to Reduce the Harmful Use of Alcohol.

As an independent coalition of public health professionals, health scientists and NGO representatives, we have written a public letter that is addressed to the WHO Director General in response to the recent initiatives of the global alcohol producers. Based on their lack of support for effective alcohol policies, their misinterpretation of the Global Strategy’s provisions, and their lobbying against effective public health measures, we believe that the alcohol industry’s inappropriate commitments must be met with a united response from global health community.They are now asking qualified professionals throughout the world to review the attached Statement of Concern, and indicate their endorsement.
