RARHA

Joint Action on Reducing Alcohol Related Harm (RARHA)

Alcohol is the 3rd risk factor for disease and death in the European Union.  The direct costs through healthcare, crime, policing, accidents and productivity losses were €155 billion in 2010.  The EU strategy to support Member States in reducing alcohol related harm identifies common priorities, including the need to develop common evidence base and monitoring, and the need to inform and raise awareness on alcohol related harm. These are instrumental for the priorities to protect children, young people and the unborn child, to reduce harm among adults and to reduce harm due to drink driving. The prevalence of harmful drinking was chosen as one key indicator for monitoring progress against the EU strategy.
