The AB InBev Foundation (ABIF) works to reduce harmful alcohol use by supporting evidence-based programs and policies that have the potential for global impact. Guided by our values of transparency, collaboration, local leadership, and rigor, our mission is to reduce harmful alcohol use globally.

Currently our work is primarily focused on six cities around the world. In each city, we support Steering Committees that include members from academia, governments, the private sector, and civil society to select, adapt, and implement evidence-based programs, practices, and policies to reduce harmful drinking by 10 percent. It’s this work that produces the data housed in the Global Smart Drinking Goals Data Library.

About the City Pilots

Established by AB InBev prior to the creation of ABIF, the six City Pilots include:

  • Leuven, Belgium
  • Brasília, Brazil
  • Jiangshan, China
  • Zacatecas, Mexico
  • Alexandra Township, Johannesburg, South Africa
  • Columbus, Ohio, USA

The City Pilots are intended to serve as laboratories for testing a package of programs, policies, and practices to reduce harmful drinking, producing the data housed in Global Smart Drinking Goals Data Library along the way. ABIF’s hope is that making data available for scientific use will contribute to the knowledge base, and accelerate the reduction of harmful alcohol use.
