Cross-border partnership aims to tackle drunk driving

29 August 2017

Alcohol is one of the top two causes of road crashes in Mozambique. Alliance member, Mozambique Association for Victims or Road Insecurity (AMVIRO) believes that cultural attitudes toward alcohol play a big part in this: being generous with alcohol is a marker of status and wealth, and a party is not a party without alcohol.

At the Global Meeting in May 2017, AMVIRO formulated a partnership with another Alliance member, South Africans Against Drunk Driving (SADD), to tackle drunk driving and establish a regional alliance. SADD is well-known for their expertise in drunk driving campaigning, education, and victim support in a country with the highest rate of alcohol related road deaths in the world. It won a prestigious Prince Michael International Road Safety Award in 2012.

The Global Meeting created many opportunities to be a catalyst for new partnerships, and we at the Alliance are delighted to see the mutual benefit that AMVIRO and SADD can derive from working together.
