The Asia Pacific Alcohol Policy Alliance (APAPA) is a network of over 65 NGOs committed to the development of effective alcohol policy in the Asia Pacific region. They aim to work with other organisations to reduce alcohol-related harm worldwide by promoting science-based policies independent of commercial interests. [1]

They aim to contribute towards the development of effective alcohol policy through meetings, information sharing, publications, and electronic communications; with the purpose to disseminate information regionally on effective alcohol policies and policy advocacy. Another of the group's objectives is to raise awareness of the issues surrounding alcohol policy by informing and working with local communities, national governments and international public health stakeholders. APAPA hope to publicise the negative consequences of alcohol which manifest as social, economic and health issues and to form alliances with other groups to advocate for international and national governmental and non-governmental efforts to reduce alcohol related harm worldwide. They operate within the WHO's Western Pacific and South East Asia regions.[2]
