Implementation in Countries
One of the project aims is to convene 13 country based teams to develop a country based strategy for the implementation of the programme to integrate interventions for hazardous and harmful alcohol consumption in primary health care settings.
The exact numbers and composition of the country based teams will vary from country to country, but include representation of: 1) Governmental organizations, 2) Non-governmental organizations, 3) Health professional organizations and/or groups and 4) Scientific organizations and/or groups.
The programmes will have a prevention and health promotion focus and will include targeted approaches for young people. The aim is to have the strategy endorsed by a number of key partners and stakeholders in each and to present to the country's Ministry of Health.
