Gender, Alcohol, and Culture: An International Study (GENACIS)
GENACIS is a collaborative international project affiliated with the Kettil Bruun Society for Social and Epidemiological Research on Alcohol, and coordinated by GENACIS partners from the University of North Dakota (US), Aarhus University (Denmark), the Alcohol Research Group/Public Health Institute (US), the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (Canada), the AER Centre for Alcohol Policy Research/Turning Point Alcohol and Drug Centre (Australia), and the Addiction Switzerland Research Institute (Switzerland).
Support for aspects of the project comes from the U.S. National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism/National Institutes of Health (Grant Numbers R21 AA012941 and R01 AA015775, Sharon C. Wilsnack, principal investigator), the Quality of Life and Management of Living Resources Programme of the European Commission (Concerted Action QLG4-CT-2001-0196, Kim Bloomfield, coordinator), the World Health Organization (Isidore Obot, coordinator), the Pan American Health Organization (Maristela Monteiro, coordinator), the German Federal Ministry of Health, and Swiss national funds.
Support for individual country surveys was provided by government agencies and other national sources. Data coordinators are Gerhard Gmel and Sandra Kuntsche, Addiction Switzerland Research Institute, Lausanne, Switzerland.
Funding for five years of secondary analyses of the 40-country GENACIS database (2007–2013) was provided by Grant Number R01 AA015775 from the U.S. National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism/National Institutes of Health.
