The National Health and Medical Research Council released national guidelines on 6 March 2009 Australian guidelines to reduce health risks from drinking alcohol .
Guidelines 1 and 2 are universally applicable to healthy adults aged 18 years and over, with a focus on improving health and wellbeing by reducing risks of alcohol–related injury and disease across the population.
Guidelines 3 and 4 address factors specific to children, adolescents, and pregnant and breastfeeding women.
