The Correlation Network (CN) is a European civil society network and centre of expertise in the field of drug use, harm reduction and social inclusion.

Overall objective of this proposal:
Improve the access to and the quality of harm reduction services for People Who Use Drugs (PWUD), including other related vulnerable and marginalised people and to enhance policies and practices that increase social inclusion.

This is achieved by the following strategic objectives
- Strengthen the network and the collaboration with its members and partners through an adequate and solid organisational network structure
- Monitor developments and collect information and evidence in the field of drug use and harm reduction, by involving the expertise of civil society organisations
- Strengthen capacities of the various players in the field of drug use and harm reduction and facilitate exchange between network members and partners
- Advocate for full coverage of harm reduction programmes in Europe, addressing both health and social aspects.

All CN activities will pay specific attention to Hepatitis C, new drug trends and drug patterns and overdose prevention.

Relevant CN outputs include : Sustainable network, Annual Monitoring Reports, Online knowledge and training hub, European Harm Reduction Conferences (2018/20), policy recommendations.

CN contributes to the Third Health Programme (THP) by promoting health (in particular harm reduction), prevent diseases (in particular drug-related diseases and infectious diseases such as HCV and HIV/AIDS), and foster supportive environments for healthy lifestyles (e.g. by reducing barriers to access health and social services).

CN contributes as well to the following THP priorities:
1.2. Drugs-related health damage, including information and prevention
1.3. HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis and hepatitis
2.2. Capacity-building against health threats in Member States, including, where appropriate, cooperation with neighbouring countries.

The overall objective of Correlation – European Harm Reduction Network (C-EHRN) is to improve the access to and the quality of harm reduction services for PWUDs including other related vulnerable and marginalised people and to enhance policies and practices that increase social inclusion. The strategic objectives, activities and operational targets of C-EHRN are organised in four different pillars: Network, Monitoring and data collection, Capacity building and Advocacy. The network pillar strives to improve and strengthen the overall structure of C-EHRN and creates the prerequisites for the implementation of actions in the other three content-based pillars. These focus on drug use and harm reduction (HR) in general and more specifically on HCV in substance users, new drug trends and drug using patterns and overdose prevention. Activities within the various pillars inform and contribute to each other. C-EHRN activities in 2020 build upon the developments and achievements of the previous years and respond to current challenges. In short, this includes: Network: Further expansion and strengthening of the network, by utilizing the expertise of itsmembers and by involving them actively in the development and the implementation of C-EHRN activities. Monitoring: Enhance the content and the implementation of the C-EHRN monitoring tool, by evaluating the monitoring process and results of 2019 and by improving coverage, outcomes and applicability of the tool. C-EHRN Focal Points (FPs) and our members of the Scientific Expert Group (SEG) will play a major in this evaluation process. Capacity Building: Ongoing collection of resources and tools for the online knowledge and training hub and development of thematic papers, materials and development and organisation of trainings. Advocacy: Identify and analyse relevant policy developments and formulate an updated advocacy strategy for 2020 and 2021. C-EHRN activities and policy recommendations.

ALLCOOL is a project where a consortium of research and collaborating stakeholders in 3 South European countries (Portugal, Spain and Italy) aim to tackle the growing trend of Heavy Episodic Drinking (HED) in the region. More research is needed to analyse the relationship between HED and lower socio-economic youth and young adults (15-30 years old). This is particularly relevant in Southern European countries going through a socioeconomic crisis, with increasing unemployment rates especially among recently graduated students and decreasing family income. By promoting healthy lifestyles, filling research gaps and implementing innovative and replicable local interventions focusing on prevention of heavy episodic drinking among youth this project will: 1) promote good health among EU youth population; 2) in the long-term, contribute to the sustainability of the health systems and healthy work forces.
To achieve this, this project intends to conduct research at the local level (WP4) that will be later compared in order to understand the local, national and south European similarities of drinking patterns, context and policy. The research results will be crucial for the development of local interventions, and produce the necessary knowledge about HED in Southern Europe, especially among low-income and unemployed young adults. This project expects also to empower and raise awareness about binge HED, especially among low-income groups, both on a local and European level. This will be done through the creation of 3 local consultative forums, the production and dissemination of local, national and European recommendations to inform comprehensive HED policy measures, in line with WHO Global Strategy to reduce harmful use of alcohol (WP25. Intervention pilots will also be implemented on a local level, in order to design and experiment adapted and effective approaches to intervene on HED, especially among low income youth and unemployed graduated young adults (WP6).
