Interventions to reduce alcohol’s harms to health: A modelling study

2 May 2023

This research project used modelling techniques to estimate the health impacts of alcohol interventions and their contribution towards health equity in the Aotearoa context. The research was conducted by a team from the University of Otago and the Northern Regional Alliance, and was funded by Te Whatu Ora – Health New Zealand (previously Te Hiringa Hauora). Four hypothetical intervention scenarios were modelled that included alcohol tax increases, outlet density reduction, outlet trading hours reduction and bans on alcohol marketing. These scenarios were compared to a business as usual scenario that assumed no changes in alcohol consumption or policy settings.
