The European Alcohol Policy Alliance (Eurocare)is one of the leading independent NGOs working on alcohol policies in Europe. It is an alliance of about 50 public health organisations from 23 European countries dedicated to the prevention and reduction of alcohol related harm. Member organisations are involved in advocacy and research, as well as in the provision of information and training on alcohol issues, and the provision of services for peoples whos lives are affected by alcohol related problems.
Eurocare`s vision is a Europe where alcohol related harm no longer is one of the leading risk factors for ill-health, early death, violence and disability, where innocent third parties no longer suffer from the drinking of others and where the EU and its Member States acknowledge the harm done by alcohol and implement effective and comprehensive policies to tackle it.
The mission of Eurocare is to raise awareness among decision makers of the harms caused by alcohol and to ensure that these are taken into consideration in relevant EU policy discussions, as well as to promote the development and implementation of evidence based policies and effectively preventing and reducing the burden brought in by alcohol.
To achieve its mission Eurocare seeks to; influence policy makers, establish collaboration with other organizations sharing our concerns, advocate effective and evidence based alcohol policies, monitor relevant policy developments, monitor marketing practices of the alcohol industry, disseminate information and knowledge through reports, position papers,web site and newsletter.
Our message in regards to alcohol consumption is "less is better".
