Effectiveness of Electronic Screening and Brief Interventions for Reducing Excessive Alcohol Consumption

 

Screening and brief interventions (SBI) for harmful use of alcohol are a cost-effective strategy to reduce the risk of alcohol harms and progress to alcohol dependence. They are effective both to the individual and at population level.  A seminar on this topic, organized by PAHO on August 13th, presented a state of the art review to date in the area of e-Screening and brief interventions-SBI and discussed how PAHO and Member States could benefit from the knowledge available.
