March 6, 2018

On 27 November 2017 it was agreed that the draft National Alcohol Strategy would undergo public consultation to inform the strategic direction and strategies of the Strategy.

Alcohol has a significant impact on the health and safety of Western Australians and alcohol-related harm is an issue across all injury areas. Alcohol is linked to a range of intentional and unintentional injuries, including falls, violence, suicide and self-harm, drownings and transport injuries.

As such Injury Matters made a submission to the consultation highlighting areas for action to reduced alcohol related harm in Western Australia.
