LDCP Alcohol and Related Harms Report Released

Alcohol consumption is a leading risk factor for death, disease and disability. Through Public Health Ontario’s Locally Driven Collaborative Project program, 12 health units have created a report titled Addressing Alcohol and Alcohol-Related Harms at the Local Level. The final report, released in October 2014, seeks to identify evidence-based local level strategies to reduce alcohol consumption and related harms.

Through the triangulation of literature, key informant interviews and public health unit surveys the project team has formulated 13 recommendations for local level action and 6 areas for advocacy in Ontario.

This report is a resource for public health practitioners who are new to the field of alcohol, as well as experienced practitioners, who are looking for evidence-based information about how to reduce the harmful effects of alcohol at the local level.
