Victorians for policy reform
Let's be honest:Alcohol causes cancer
Alcohol Change Vic is a collaboration of organisations concerned about the harm fuelled by the alcohol industry and its products in Victoria.
We campaign for policy reform to protect Victorian individuals, families and communities from alcohol fuelled harm.
6,000 deaths every yearAlcohol products kill nearly 6,000 Australians each year.
7 types of cancerAlcohol is a cause of at least seven types of cancer: breast, bowel, mouth, pharynx, larynx, oesophagus and liver.
Today's long awaited Bill to reform Victoria's Liquor Control Reform Act 1998 (Liquor Act) will fail to reduce family violence and alcohol-related harms. This is despite Victoria's Royal Commission into Family Violence recommending that the review of the Act focus on these issues and that the Government consult with family violence advocates and community organisations over five years ago.
Alcohol Change Victoria welcomes the 32 recommendations of the Community Affairs References Committee Senate Inquiry into Effective Approaches to Prevention, Diagnosis and Support for FASD and applauds the Committee for recommending a range of policy reforms to protect the health of Australian women and babies.
