The Queensland Government is currently considering how best to tackle alcohol-fuelled violence.
Action on Alcohol is a campaign that wants to reduce the number of alcohol-related harms and deaths in Queensland.
We would like to see a comprehensive and sophisticated approach to reducing alcohol-related harms.
We need a proactive approach, not just a reactive one, where we tackle the issues before lives are ruined, not after.
In Queensland, too much harm is being caused by alcohol.
In 2012, Queensland hospital emergency departments saw 91,783 alcohol-related presentations – that’s an increase of 31 per cent in just five years.
We need to prevent these harms and make our communities safer.
