File A total ban on alcohol advertising: Presenting the public health case
Evidence from burden of disease and economic costing studies amply indicate that the public health burden from hazardous and harmful use of alcohol in South Africa warrants drastic action. Evidence that banning alcohol advertising is likely to be an effective intervention is reflected in WHO strategy documents on non-communicable diseases and harmful use of alcohol. Studies on young people furthermore support arguments refuting the claim that advertising only influences brand choice. Given the weakness of relying on industry self-regulation, the government is considering legislation to ban alcohol advertising, resulting in heated debate. This paper was written by by Charles Parry, Nadine Harker Burnhams and Leslie London

Sungwon Yoon and Tai-Hing Lam explore how Corporate social responsibility (CSR) has become a key promotion tool for the alcohol industry.

This paper aims to investigate the alcohol industry’s recent CSR engagements and explain how CSR forms part of the industry’s wider political and corporate strategies.
