Alcohol use is a risk factor for many non-communicable diseases, accidents, violence, and suicides. Alcohol use was the sixth leading risk factor for death and disability in Latvia over the last decade. Since 2017 Latvia has had the highest alcohol consumption rate in Europe, which has continued to rise in recent years, resulting in a high disease burden. The analysis aims to compile alcohol-related public health indicators to provide an overview of alcohol consumption trends and the alcohol-related burden of health problems in Latvia.
