RCP welcomes OECD alcohol report

The Royal College of Physicians (RCP) and the European Public Health Alliance (EPHA) have jointly welcomed the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development's (OECD's) new report ‘Tackling Harmful Alcohol Use: Economics and Public Health Policy’.

Professor Nick Sheron, RCP representative to the EU Alcohol and Health Forum and EPHA scientific advisor on alcohol commented:

The OECD is an organisation with impeccable economic credibility and so the modelling of health and economic impact of alcohol policy in this outstanding report deserves to be taken very seriously by governments around the world.
