Advancing alcohol health literacy - specifically knowledge of strategies to avoid harmful drinking – as an approach to reduce harmful drinking.

WHAT WE DO

We work with partners at the global and community levels to help reduce harmful drinking and affect positive change.

The Foundation will primarily help fund partners' development of implementation tools and certain programs selected by the steering committees where AB InBev Global City Pilots are in place. It will also engage partners and organizations to measure, evaluate, and publish on the effectiveness of various programs related to the Global Smart Drinking Goals , with the goal of identifying solutions to positively change or reduce behaviors related to harmful drinking.

WHY WE DO IT

THE HARMFUL USE OF ALCOHOL REMAINS A MAJOR GLOBAL PROBLEM

Significantly preventing and reducing harmful use is a challenge that requires a collective, coordinated response, which thus far has not been sufficient. Around the world, we need bolder action that can only come from stronger collaboration, starting at the community level.
