leading change: a society free from alcohol harm

European-wide brief rapid response survey to study experiences and drinking behaviour during COVID19 crisis

Collaborating with the Technische Universität Dresden (TUD, Germany) and the Hospital Clínic de Barcelona (FCRB, Spain), along with the support of a number of public health and research institutes in Europe, Alcohol Action Ireland are launching a European-wide brief rapid response survey, aimed at the general population, to study personal experiences and drinking behaviour (and abstention) during the current pandemic of SARSCoV-2 (i.e., coronavirus or COVID-19).

 

Alcohol Action Ireland are helping to disseminate the survey in Ireland and are seeking your help with this.

 

With the outbreak of SARS-CoV-2 in Europe, political actions by national governments led to changes in daily and public life in many places, including possible changes in alcohol consumption and impacts on health and safety. The data from this survey will contribute to a better understanding of consumption patterns and health outcomes during times of pandemic or similar events involving restrictions and quarantine, and should support evidence-based policy action and decisions in times of crises to protect health and well-being.

 

The anonymous survey is available in 16 languages, and only takes 10 minutes to complete.

 

Please contribute to this research by:

 

– completing the short survey yourself (whether or not you drink alcohol), and

– help us to gather data across Europe by disseminating the link to the survey below as widely as possible through your networks and contacts, both professional and personal.
