Alcohol Use and Associated Factors among Adolescent Students in Thailand

Issue: 
Pages: 
890–6
Synopsis: 
The prevalence of alcohol misuse among adolescents in Thailand was 14.8%. Efforts to prevent and control alcohol misuse may need to address a cluster of risk behaviours including cigarette smoking.


ABSTRACT

Objective: Alcohol misuse is a relevant public health issue in Thailand. The assessment of the prevalence of alcohol use among adolescents may guide policies and programmes aimed at reducing alcohol use among this age group.

Method: Using data from the Thailand Global School-based Student Health Survey (GSHS) 2008, we assessed the prevalence of alcohol use and the associated factors among adolescents (n = 2758).
