The updated Action Agenda in 2016 retains our 10-year goal and sets out a new three-year priority for alcohol:

• 10-YEAR GOAL – 200,000 more Victorians drink less alcohol
• THREE-YEAR PRIORITY – 80,000 more people and environments that support effective reduction in harmful alcohol use.

Noting the importance of considering health equity across all activities, our work in alcohol will also aim to reduce inequities in alcohol-related harm.

The three-year timeframe for this strategy (2016–19) allows progress to be assessed at the three-quarter-way point of working towards the 10-year goal.
