Welcome to the Alcohol Healthwatch Trust website

Alcohol consumption is widely accepted throughout New Zealand society. However, the harmful effects of alcohol on individuals, families and communities are far-reaching and contribute significantly to the incidence of ill-health, injury and violence in our country.  Alcohol Healthwatch is a team of professionals dedicated to reducing and preventing alcohol-related harm in Aotearoa/New Zealand through effective health promotion.
