The Gambling Health Alliance

The objective of the Alliance is to bring together organisations and individuals, specifically policy makers, who have a shared interest in reducing the damage caused to health and wellbeing from gambling. 

The Alliance will support policy-making and policy makers to address the social, economic and cultural factors that contribute to gambling harm and the inequalities in health caused by it. The alliance will seek to:

  • Highlight the levels of gambling harms
  • Engage and inform policy makers, Government, NGOs and public health communities in order to encourage a coherent and co-ordinated response to reducing gambling harms
  • Promote evidence so it can be translated into practical steps 
  • Undertake periodic surveys and polling to inform GHA campaigns to increase awareness of the health harms from gambling
  • Focus on prevention, early intervention, and increased community engagement.
