WHO have posted a Report on its website that represents the culmination of 25 years of research in the WHO Collaborative Project on Identification and Management of Alcohol-related Problems in Primary Health Care.

The Report describes Phase IV in this series of studies and is entitled: Development of Country-wide Strategies for Implementing Early Identification and Brief Intervention in Primary Health Care. The primary aim of the Phase IV study was to develop and apply country-wide strategies for the widespread, routine and enduring implementation of early identification and brief intervention in the primary health care systems of participating countries. The Report contains summaries of action research with this aim carried out in 11 European countries plus Australia, together with introductory and concluding chapters.
