ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the report titled "The Global Status Report on Alcohol and Health" which shows that most countries lack programs and prevention policies needed to monitor alcohol use. It states that the report contains various measures pursued by the World Health Organization (WHO) to reduce alcohol-related deaths and injuries including increased alcohol taxes and age limits for buyers. The report says that fatal injuries linked to alcohol consumption mostly occur in young people.
