Much of this work has been undertaken through a series of international collaborative studies involving EU countries on the detection and management of alcohol-related problems in primary health care coordinated by the World Health Organization. Screening instruments have been developed and tested, the efficacy of interventions demonstrated, the current practices and perceptions of primary health care physicians assessed, and the methods for encouraging the uptake and utilizations of interventions.

The Project aim supports the European Community's Public Health Strategy and the European Charter on Alcohol and the European Alcohol Action Plan, of the World Health Organization.
