Joint Action on Reducing Alcohol Related Harm (RARHA) commences

RARHA is a 3 year action funded by the European Union under the second EU Health Programme. It aims to support Member States to make progress on priorities identified in the EU Alcohol Strategy and therefore strengthen their capacity to address and reduce the harm associated with alcohol.

Member States will use a common survey methodology to obtain comparable data for monitoring progress in reducing alcohol related harm at national and EU level and for benchmarking national developments against wider trends.

Communication on alcohol related harm will be broadened, giving policy makers guidance on the scientific basis and policy implications of low risk drinking guidelines.

A Tool–Kit of good practice approaches in information dissemination will be developed, taking into account effectiveness, transferability, relevance, costs and usefulness.

The joint action RARHA will be coordinated by Portugal, with the participation of 32 associated partners from 27 Member States plus Iceland, Norway and Switzerland, and 28 collaborating partners, such as the EMCDDA, WHO, Pompidou Group and OECD, among others
