Join us on Tuesday, June 14, from 1:00 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. (EDT) on the webinar “Estimating alcohol harm and modeling alcohol policy scenarios using the International Alcohol Harm and Policy ModelThis webinar will introduce the International Alcohol-Related Harm and Policy Model and cover the data requirements needed to use it. It will also present application cases of this online tool.
The webinar is aimed at researchers, policymakers, and government officials who will design and implement alcohol-related studies.
How to participate
Estimating alcohol harm allows regions, countries and cities to analyze the impact that various alcohol policies may have on their communities. The International Model of Alcohol-Related Harms and Policies (InterMAHP; www.intermahp.cisur.ca) is an open-access platform, developed by researchers at the Canadian Institute for Substance Use Research (CISUR ), a PAHO/WHO Collaborating Center, which can help alcohol research teams and government officials estimate alcohol harm and model policy scenarios.
This webinar will build on previous ones offered in 2021. It will describe InterMAHP and cover the data requirements needed to use this online tool. To illustrate the usefulness of InterMAHP, speakers will demonstrate how to use the tool to estimate the potential health benefits of introducing a minimum unit price in Canada. The webinar will also feature a country case with representatives from Chile’s Ministry of Health sharing their experience in training and using InterMAHP.
