Drinking guidelines are issued by government bodies to provide information on the relationship between drinking and potential outcomes, and are intended to support individual choices around drinking in a way that minimizes the likelihood of harm. This review offers an overview of national drinking guidelines where they exist.
IARD Policy Reviews cover the evidence on the impact of policy measures on drinking patterns and outcomes. They offer an overview of the key literature and provide the reader with an extensive bibliography that refers to original research on each topic. The Reviews attempt to present the balance of the available evidence. They do not necessarily reflect the views of IARD or its sponsoring companies.
