POLICY BRIEF: Alcohol marketing, youth and sexual health risks

Soul City Institute, under the auspice of the STRIVE research consortium, conducted a community-based study to assess the density of alcohol outlets in one urban and one rural community and explore young people’s perspectives on alcohol advertising, marketing and availability, as well as their drinking patterns and sexual health and safety.

Soul City conducted the study in a rural village in Mpumalanga and an urban township in Gauteng, South Africa.

The research employed PhotoVoice methodology. Young people captured their experiences through photographic images and captions, complemented by focus group discussions.
