Global Status Report on Alcohol 2004
WHO has been actively involved in documenting the global, regional and national dimensions of alcohol consumption since the start of the Global Alcohol Database in 1996. Out of the earlier work came the Global Status Report on Alcohol (1999), the Global Status Report on Alcohol and Young People (2001) and the recently published Global Status Report: Alcohol Policy (2004). This publication follows the same tradition of the first Global Status Report five years ago, but it represents a complete update of the information. It gives valuable new
perspectives on the recent status of health and social consequences of alcohol use and levels and patterns of alcohol consumption worldwide.
