"Regional Survey on Alcohol Use and COVID-19 in Latin America and the Caribbean",

presented by Dr. Maristela Monteiro, Senior Advisor on Alcohol, Department of Noncommunicable Diseases and Mental Health, PAHO.

The session will be only in English.


Drinking alcohol is primarily a social activity, often done in the public, in public venues, festivals, sporting events. The availability of alcohol in these places have decreased with the implementation of quarantine and other measures to contain the spread of the COVID-19. It is important to know what has changed in the drinking habits of the population so we can better respond with information, education, services and other strategies as needed and in a timely manner.

Therefore, PAHO has elaborated an anonymous and confidential survey to be responded by people older than 18 years old living in Latin America and Caribbean countries. In this webinar, the results of the survey will be presented.
