A recent survey revealed that Cypriot children have easy access to alcohol, surpassing the European average, with 87% reporting easy access. While they consume less alcohol in volume, they drink more frequently than their European peers, with boys drinking more heavily than girls. Health advocates are raising concerns about the associated health risks and urging for educational campaigns and policy changes to address this issue.
