Alcohol and the Commercial Determinants of Health

26th March 2024, 2:00pm - 4:00pm , Online

An Alcohol SIG Expert talk by Dr Nason Maani.

Nason's research interests centre on the structural and commercial determinants of health, with a special interest in how they shape public understanding and policy. This includes primary research on the alcohol, sugar sweetened beverage, firearm, social media, and fossil fuel industries, as well as policy research on the relationships between underinvestment, commercial influence and inequity.

Along with colleagues, he also contributes to writing in more public facing fora, videos and other media to communicate research to wider audiences (see for example here), and hosts Money Power Health, a podcast on the commercial drivers of ill health (available on Apple, Spotify).

He has served as a consultant and expert for the WHO on the commercial determinants of health, and is an editor alongside Sandro Galea and Mark Petticrew of the book "The Commercial Determinants of Health", released by Oxford University Press. He is currently a co-investigator on an NIHR Three Schools-funded scoping review of the commercial determinants of mental health.
