dc.description.abstract [Motivation] A high prevalence of alcohol consumption and the negative impact of alcohol on rural communities in the Western Cape have been linked to coercive labour practices and the ease of availability of cheap, low quality white wine, typically packaged in foil bags (papsakke). A process is underway to regulate papsakke out of the market. However, limited research has been conducted on the use and impact of papsakke. [Aims and objectives] This study aims to determine the prevalence of, and risk factors for papsak consumption and problem amongst farm workers in the rural Western Cape. It also explores the attitudes of drinkers with respect to their choice of alcohol type and the practices of papsak drinkers, in order to identify target groups for community level interventions and to inform the consent and monitoring of developmental and/or restrictive interventions. [Study design] A cross sectional analytical study performed as a post hoc analysis of data obtained from a larger study on papsakke which included a farm worker survey. [Subjects] 461 female and male farm workers resident on predominantly wine grape producing farms in Stellenbosch, Franschoek and Vredendal in the rural Western Cape Province from February to May of 2004. en_ZA
