Summary This is a thematic report on alcohol policies in the Northern Dimension countries. It has been developed within the framework of the Northern Dimension Partnership in Public Health and Social Well-being (NDPHS). The countries covered in the report include Estonia, Finland, Latvia, Lithuania, Norway, Poland, Russia and Sweden. Alcohol policy can be defined as all national strategies and programmes that are directed to influence alcohol availability, demand and consumption behavior of people. Therefore, alcohol policy consists of different fields, e.g., regulations of availability and marketing, license system for production and sale, education policy, research and prevention. Depending on a country, the range and strictness of measures differ widely. At the end of the report the detailed data on outcomes of alcohol consumption in the NDPHS partner countries and a brief summary of selected measures (minimum age, opening hours of off-premise alcohol sale, maximum blood alcohol content) that reduce alcohol availability and drunk-driving (Table 18), is also available.
