The Zimbabwe National Alcohol Policy is a comprehensive national strategy to address and reduce the harmful use of alcohol. This National Alcohol Policy seeks to achieve four main aims:
- To promote the safe and the beneficial consumption of alcoholic beverages by responsible, adult, Zimbabweans;
- Investigate and control the factors which induce alcohol related harm;
- Protect the children of Zimbabwe, as well as vulnerable communities and individuals; and
- Provide treatment and rehabilitation facilities, both public and private, for those affected by alcohol related harms.
