Unhealthy diets are a leading cause of death and disability globally.

In response to recent increases in alcohol consumption and related harms, MMCs have introduced civil alcohol policies, ranging from total prohibition to European-style regulations. Using Iran as a case study, we describe how alcohol prohibition is translated into policy in the face of influences from globalisation. Methods We collected informat...
