From February 2017, information about the work of the MRC/CSO Social and Public Health Sciences Unit, University of Glasgow is available and updated on the University of Glasgow website.

Minimum unit pricing of alcohol in Scotland

A collaborative study with the UUPHR programme investigated the media reporting of the debate on minimum unit pricing (MUP). It described how MUP advocates and the alcohol industry sought to influence the policy process through the mass media in order to identify lessons for future public health advocacy.

Building on the Unit's prior work, and in collaboration with NHS Health Scotland, there are plans to carry out an evaluation of the impact of MUP after its introduction.
