This project by NDRI, collaborating with NDARC (University of New South Wales), the Public Health Advocacy Institute of WA (Curtin University) and the Drug and Alcohol Office of WA, will prepare two objective, publishable evidence-based reports on the effectiveness of advisory statements on labels of alcohol products related to alcohol consumption during pregnancy and to excessive alcohol consumption in the short-term. The reports will include estimates of the possible changes in measures of effectiveness following the introduction of advisory statements on packaged alcohol in Australia and New Zealand and in the context of alcohol and other drug policies of the respective countries.
