Seminar on Cost-Effective Measures for Reducing Harmful Use of Alcohol

Bogota, Colombia,

In 2016, Colombia’s Ministry of Health and Social Protection, in collaboration with PAHO, developed a strategic and management framework to manage the harmful use of alcohol in the country. This framework is aligned with the National Plan for Health Promotion, Prevention, and Care for Psychoactive Substances, and draws on global guidelines and recommendations.

Given the importance of the evidence, as well as recent global efforts to prevent the harmful use of alcohol, the country is inviting interested parties to participate in an academic seminar titled: “Evidence of the Most Cost-Effective Measures for Reducing the Harmful Use of Alcohol.” The seminar will be held on Tuesday, 28 February 2017, from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm (Colombia time). There will be no translation. The meeting agenda is attached for your convenience. 

The seminar will include, among others, the participation of two international experts: Dr. Maristela Monteiro, PAHO’s Senior Advisor for Alcohol (will present in Spanish), and David Jernigan, PhD, Professor at the Johns Hopkins University School of Public Health (will present in English).

To participate in person: Auditorio 1 del Ministerio de Salud y Protección Social, ubicado en la carrera 13 N. 32 – 76, piso 4
