SURVEY ON ALCOHOL USE AND COVID-19
Drinking alcohol is primarily a social activity, often done in the public, in public venues, festivals, sporting events. The availability of alcohol in these places have decreased with the implementation of quarantine and other measures to contain the spread of the COVID-19. It is important to know what has changed in the drinking habits of the population so we can better respond with information, education, services and other strategies as needed and in a timely manner.
Therefore, PAHO has elaborated an anonymous and confidential survey to be responded by people older than 18 years old living in Latin America and Caribbean countries. The questionnaire does not ask your name or address, nor IP address or phone number that can be traced. None of the information provided by the respondents will be linked to them. The information gathered with this survey will be used to prepare statistics of the population from the countries.
There are no benefits for the respondents from participating but their participation can help public health experts to learn about the situation in their country and region and plan solutions that will help in the prevention and management of the consequences of COVID-19 and related measures to contain its spread.
This survey is funded by the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) and it was approved by the Ethics Committee of PAHO.
Requirements to participate in the survey:
- Being older than 18 years old
- Live in any of the countries in Latin America or the Caribbean after 15 March, 2020
- Responses will be collected until 30 June 2020
