Drug Fight Malawi

In April 2008, Drug Fight Malawi, an NGO that was implementing a project on “Alcohol harm prevention among in and-out of school youths”, called for an Alcohol Stakeholders’ meeting.

The purpose was to consider the position, role and conflict of interests that emerged since the alcohol industry had been involved in drafting an alcohol policy for the country. The meeting also shared the lessons and experiences from work implemented by the organization. Following consultation with civil society and government on the issue of the alcohol industry’s participation in policy development, it was suggested that a task force be established to steer an evidence-based alcohol policy development process for Malawi.
