EU-wide rapid response study on Alcohol consumption during the COVID-19 pandemic

Contribute to a study of the European impact of COVID-19 on health with 10-min anonymous survey

The Technische Universität Dresden (TUD, Germany) and the Hospital Clínic de Barcelona (FCRB, Spain), with the support of a number of public health and research institutes in Europe, are launching a European-wide brief rapid response survey, aimed at the general population, to study personal experiences and drinking behaviour (and abstention) during the current pandemic of SARS-CoV-2 (i.e., coronavirus or COVID-19).

With the outbreak of SARS-CoV-2 in Europe, political actions by national governments led to changes in daily and public life in many places, including possible changes in alcohol consumption and impacts on health and safety. The data from this survey will contribute to a better understanding of consumption patterns and health outcomes during times of pandemic or similar events involving restrictions and quarantine, and should support evidence-based policy action and decisions in times of crises to protect health and well-being.

The anonymous survey is available in 15 languages, and only takes 10 minutes to complete.   Contribute to a study of the European impact of COVID-19 on health with 10-min anonymous survey: https://bit.ly/EUCovid19alc
