Ethiopia bans alcohol advertisements | AddisNews.net

Ethiopia’s government has banned alcoholic beverage advertisements
Wednesday to promote healthy living, according to the nation’s health
minister.

Amir Aman told reporters the ban came as part of a healthy lifestyle work initiated in East African countries.

He
said all broadcasting organizations should adhere to the prohibition
and all lottery awards and banners related to alcoholic drinks were also
prohibited.

Ethiopia in February banned smoking near state
institutions, medical facilities and entertainment centers, and selling
alcohol to those under the age of 21.
