From the NCD Media Fellowship "Alcohol's Silent Toll: Health and Social Damage" - Cambodia

BY MENG SEAVMEY and MECH CHOULAY, Cambodianess. Alcohol consumption is a growing concern in Cambodia, a country with no currently enforced legal drinking age, due to its harmful effects on personal health and its contribution to other social issues. Through a variety of case studies from across the country, interviews with resource persons, and available health data, this news feature illustrates how harmful alcohol use not only increases the risk for developing NCDs such as cardiovascular and liver disease, but can also lead to social harms like domestic violence and traffic accidents. Other particular concerns tackled include the rising prevalence of alcohol use among young people, the mental health toll of frequent drunk driving incidents on road users, and how alcohol use exacerbates poverty through consumption and health treatment costs. Among the contributing factors to alcohol use prevalence explored were the vast availability of alcohol, aggressive advertisement of alcoholic drinks, and the lack of restriction from family members and retailers on young people’s alcohol consumption and purchasing. Some government interventions on this issue are currently being rolled out.
