A new study suggests there's support among New Zealanders for banning alcohol sponsorship at sporting and community events.
The Otago University-Cancer Society’s survey of more than 1400 people finds that 58% support a ban, and 19% oppose it.
51% agree that the alcohol industry should not be involved in developing alcohol harm policies, while 16% disagree.
Study co-author Professor Louise Signal told Francesca Rudkin that there are three main factors involved in reducing alcohol consumption: price, marketing, and accessibility.
She thinks that the public is pretty supportive of policies in all of those areas.
