Excerpt
1. INTRODUCTION The attitudes and practices of alcohol use have been undergoing definitive changes in the countries of the South-East Asian Region, more so in the last two decades. The Global Status Report on Alcohol by the World Health Organization (1999) documents that alcohol consumption in the South-East Asia Region is rising. This trend of increasing consumption also needs to be seen in the context of falling consumption patterns in the European Region. It is believed that with the developed parts of the world reaching stable saturation or declining patterns of consumption, market forces are targeting the developing parts of the world such as Member Countries of SEAR. These forces, operating through the media and other promotional strategies, complement the social and cultural forces of globalization and will lead to an expected rise in the consumption of alcohol in the Asian region. Alcohol abuse in the rural communities of SEAR Member Countries is a particularly serious problem. No reliable population-based data are available about consumption of alcohol in such rural communities. The pattern of drinking is usually binge drinking centred around pay day or on special occasions such as marriages and festivals. Alcohol consumption is frequently responsible for domestic violence and quarrels with neighbours. It also accounts for numerous accidents such as road accidents and falling down hills in mountainous communities. Also, given the poor socioeconomic status of most rural communities, disproportionate amounts of family income is spent on alcohol leaving very little money for food, education, housing and health. Thus a vicious cycle of poverty is perpetuated. Usually, locally-brewed or home-brewed alcohol is consumed. Sometimes this is contaminated with methanol or other toxic agents; thus, poisoning is frequently reported in rural areas.
