SHAAP/SARN 'Alcohol Occasional' Seminar, 5th December 2016

'Does harm from drinking differ by socioeconomic status? Exploring the alcohol harm paradox'

Dr S Vittal Katikireddi, Senior Clinical Research Fellow and Honorary Consultant in Public Health, MSC/SCO, Social and Public Health Sciences Unit, University of Glasgow, began his presentation by defining the alcohol paradox and presented a range of hypotheses to explain it. Survey data shows that individuals in lower socioeconomic status groups consume alcohol at similar levels to their counterparts in higher socioeconomic groups; however, those lower socioeconomic status individuals suffer greater harm from this consumption – this is the alcohol harm paradox. Dr Katikireddi then presented findings from his current research which aimed to offer some explanations for the alcohol harm paradox.
