Estimating the impact of alcohol use on health harms and the effects of having different price policies in Quebec

Funding body: Institut National de Santé Publique du Québec

Background: As a means of informing policy-making in Québec regarding alcohol prices, we have been requested to estimate alcohol-attributable morbidity and mortality in Québec and, further, how this would change under different alcohol pricing scenarios e.g. introducing a minimum price per standard drink.

Progress to date: The report has been completed and a paper prepared for publication.  These are awaiting approval for release by the funding body.
