Not one more – NAAPA launches election platform

Nov 25, 2014

NAAPA, a coalition which the Last Drinks coalitions is partnered with, today launched its ‘Not one more’ campaign calling on the NSW political parties in the upcoming election to commit to stopping alcohol harms across NSW.

Each day in NSW alcohol is responsible for 66 assaults, including 27 domestic assaults, 28 emergency department presentations, 142 hospitalisations and three deaths. One more harm from alcohol is one too many.

The upcoming 2015 NSW State Election provides NSW with an opportunity to ensure that their next Government continues to work towards a comprehensive plan that addresses alcohol harms.
