Objectives  To share information, experiences, research findings and expertise in the area of alcohol brief interventions.  To facilitate training on brief interventions and provide assistance to countries and institutions to adapt and implement brief interventions, particularly with regard to the transfer of knowledge and technology from high income to low income countries.  To promote best practice and develop guidelines for the wide dissemination and implementation of brief interventions.  To identify gaps and needs for research in the field of alcohol brief interventions, promote international research co-operation and set standards for research in this field.  To integrate the study of brief interventions with the wider context of measures to prevent and reduce alcohol-related harm.  To pay particular attention to the needs of young people in relation to alcohol brief interventions.
