Alcohol consumption is a growing public health and social concern in the EU. Europe has the highest proportion of drinkers in the world, the highest levels of alcohol consumption per capita and a high level of alcohol-related harm. Accountable for over 7% of all ill-health and early deaths, even moderate alcohol consumption increases the long term risk of liver disease, cancer and heart conditions. Furthermore, harmful and hazardous consumption has a broader social impact such as violence, family problems, crime, social exclusion and low productivity at work. These, in turn, generate costs related to health care, law enforcement and public order, and workplaces, and thus have a negative impact on economic development and on society as a whole. …
This timely International Symposium seeks to harness actions which have been put in place to reduce alcohol-related harm and share good practices, as well as identify gaps where further progress can be made. Alcohol abuse is a complex issue that negatively impacts the wider community and it is essential for stakeholders to discuss the various intervention and prevention strategies. The Symposium is an invaluable opportunity to examine the latest initiatives at both EU and national levels and consider recommendations for future actions to reduce harmful effects of alcohol misuse.
Public Policy Exchange welcomes the participation of all key partners, responsible authorities and stakeholders. The Symposium will support the exchange of ideas and encourage delegates to engage in thought-provoking topical debate.
