By bringing together data and research on drinking patterns, alcohol in society, and regulations at a national level, IARD examines best practice around policies and interventions that reduce harmful drinking. IARD’s tools and resources are intended to support practitioners in formulating approaches that can be adapted to local needs and contexts.
