Professor Sally Casswell was a resource person at a week long workshop held in the Lao People’s Democratic Republic in which senior government officials from health, justice, finance and trade from four countries: Viet Nam, Lao PDR, Cambodia and Mongolia came together to develop effective alcohol policy. This was the second module of a project organised by the Western Pacific Regional Office of the World Health Organisation. ‘This is a contribution we make as a World Health Organisation Collaborating Centre in alcohol and drug policy and provides a very valuable insight into the alcohol environment and the activities of the alcohol industry globally’ said Professor Casswell.
