A group of researchers got together to form an international network of people interested in promoting alcohol screening and brief interventions across the world. It is called INEBRIA (International Network on Brief Interventions for Alcohol Problems) and is supported by the World Health Organization and the Health Department of the Government of Catalonia in
Barcelona. The overall aim is: “To promote wide implementation of brief interventions in a variety of settings for hazardous and harmful alcohol consumption at local, national and international levels.”
Latina, the Latin American section of INEBRIA International, is an initiative sponsored by the Tobacco, Alcohol and Substance Abuse Project of the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO-WHO). It was created for health researchers, students and other people interested in the development and implementation of preventive, brief interventions for alcohol use related problems in Latin America.
