In March 2009, the Scottish Government published a new strategy for addressing the harms associated with alcohol misuse entitled Changing Scotland’s Relationship with Alcohol: A Framework for Action. The document is important for health ethics because it signals a philosophical shift in the way countries in the United Kingdom address alcohol related harms.
