IARD’s research program adds to the body of available knowledge and the evidence used to inform policy and interventions, particularly in developing countries. Much of IARD’s research explores differences in the relationship between drinking and cultural, social, and economic factors in countries around the world, and the impact of policies in different contexts. Understanding these differences allows the formulation of approaches that can be adapted to the particular needs of countries around the world.
