Commissioned report— June 2019
""

This report explores potential policy interventions to reduce gambling harm, drawing on existing gambling research and evidence from other areas of public health. 

Three research questions guided the project: 

  • What are the most effective evidence-based policies and initiatives to reduce harm associated with gambling?
  • What have been the most effective policy drivers for change in areas such as alcohol, tobacco, physical activity and HIV, and how might they be replicated in gambling?
  • What effective policies used or proposed in other areas of public health could be translated to gambling?

The report is published on the Victorian Responsible Gambling Foundation website.
