Alcohol

Alcohol is a significant cause of disease, disability and social harm in the Hawke’s Bay community.

Every year, around 600-800 New Zealanders die from alcohol-related harm.

The Hawke's Bay District Health Board Population Health team works on initiatives to promote the safe use of alcohol and reduce the harm caused by alcohol. This involves working with young people, parents and the community, as well as organisations and those selling alcohol at their premises/event.
