Gender, culture and alcohol problems: a multi-national study (GENDER AND ALCOHOL)

Objective

The proposed study, with WHO participation, will examine differences in drinking behaviour amongst men and women in 13 EU and 5 non-EU countries. It will analyse gender differences in drinking patterns and drinking contexts and in the prevalence of alcohol-related problems. It will also investigate gender differences in the experience of alcohol-related violence in close relationships, in social inequalities in alcohol use/abuse as well as in combinations of social roles associated with heavy alcohol use. Finally, it will examine the influence of societal level factors on differences in men and women's alcohol use in the study countries. Using centralised data analysis and standardised measures, the study will inform European Public Health policy by identifying gender differences in "at-risk" subgroups and by seeking to better specify and understand the differing correlates and conditions of problematic alcohol use between the genders.
