Alcohol harms you, others and the society. Why does EU need an alcohol strategy?

 Registration is closed for this event

 

 

The current EU Alcohol Strategy is coming to an end in 2012. However Europe is still the world’s heaviest drinking region- 12.5l  

- Alcohol is the world’s number one risk factor for ill-health and premature death amongst the 25 – 59 year old age group, a core of the working age population

  - Alcohol related harm is 1 of the 4 risk factors for developing NCDs such as cancer and cardiovascular disease

- Social costs attributable to alcohol account for €155.8 billion

Due to the size of the problem and universal impact this problem requires a comprehensive, coordinated response from policy and decision makers at the European and national levels

This event will build on the Call for Action from 88 health and social NGOs from across Europe and will be an opportunity to address the issue in the European Parliament to ensure continuation of the efforts to tackle alcohol related harm.
