Women and alcohol: evidence synthesis of the impacts on population level interventions to reduce alcohol use/harm by gender

Funded by Glasgow Centre for Population Health.

There is good evidence to suggest that a range of population-based interventions such as pricing, control of marketing, and reduction in availability of alcohol can reduce alcohol-related harm. This study will analyse published literature reviews of such interventions to determine the extent to which they report participation by women and any specific effects on women in the original studies underpinning this evidence. The results of the study will inform policy decisions as well as providing a basis for more detailed work considering how these kinds of interventions may have a differential effect by gender. The study was published in Addiction: https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/27177685/

Infographics based on aspects of this study were also produced with Glasgow Caledonian University.
