Abstract

While introducing international health laws can be helpful in achieving consistent, predictable health outcomes, further evidence is needed that these laws achieve results commensurate with the cost of drafting, ratifying, and implementing them. As proposed, the Framework Convention on Alcohol Control reinforces the paradigm of powerful states imposing laws on poorer states from afar.

Keywords: international, health, law, evidence, outcomes, paradigm, alcohol, control, state, national
