Key takeaways & next steps:

  • AB InBev Foundation’s “smart drinking” program focuses on making every experience with beer a positive one. It encourages consumers to make informed and responsible choices regarding alcohol consumption through the use of evidence-based methodologies. 
  • Collaboration and partnership are important to address complex global challenges. By working together, corporations, foundations, and other stakeholders can combine their strengths to achieve greater impact. 
  • It is vital to build a “community of practice” that brings together people and leaders from various organizations, including AB InBev Foundation and public health experts. This collaborative approach ensures the delivery of evidence-based solutions.
