The consultation draft of the National Alcohol Strategy 2018-2026 has now been released for comment and is available at http://www.health.gov.au/internet/main/publishing.nsf/Content/ministerial-drug-alcohol-forum
As a sub-strategy of the National Drug Strategy 2017-2026, the National Alcohol Strategy is overseen by the Ministerial Drug and Alcohol Forum. The Forum consists of Ministers from across Australia with responsibility for alcohol and other drug policy from the health and justice / law enforcement portfolios from each jurisdiction.
On 27 November 2017, members agreed that the draft National Alcohol Strategy will undergo a public consultation process to further inform the strategic direction and priorities of the Strategy.
The online submission process is now open and will close on 11 February 2018.
Following consultation, the National Alcohol Strategy will be revised and considered by Ministers at their next meeting in 2018.
