STUDY OF DRINKING PATTERNS

This project aims to examine the patterns of drinking in men who are hazardous drinkers, focusing on the use of different types of alcohol such as non-commercial alcohols.
The study is a descriptive study using drink-diaries administered weekly over one month. The samples (n=200) will be drawn from community low-income settings in four centres; two urban centres (New Delhi and Ahmedabad) and two rural (Mandur, Goa & Vellore, Tamil Nadu).
