Public Opinion Poll Results on Alcohol Consumption in Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka has a significant burden of alcohol-related harms, with alcohol consumption responsible for thousands of deaths from noncommunicable diseases and injuries each year. Vital Strategies’ RESET Alcohol initiative supports countries to implement cost- effective policies to reset the alcohol environment, cut harms and raise revenues for positive social change. 

To support the development of evidence-based alcohol policies in Sri Lanka, RESET Alcohol and ADIC, Sri Lanka (Alcohol and Drug Information Centre) conducted a public opinion poll to gather insights on people’s knowledge about alcohol, attitudes toward its consumption and support for policy action to reduce consumption.

This research brief summarizes findings from the poll.
