The European Alcohol and Health Forum[1] will hold its 11th Plenary meeting in Brussels on November 22.

With the EU Alcohol Strategy coming to an end, the Forum will look at the challenges ahead and the prospects for future work and commitments of the forum members. COWI Consortium will present an evaluation of the EU Alcohol Strategy and its implementation and in the afternoon the meeting will focus on the progress made in responsible marketing and pointers for the future ( Agenda).

The 4th Open Alcohol and Health Forum will take place the day after (23 November). The Open Forum is an opportunity for the forum members to share their experiences and for further stakeholders and interested parties to join in the discussion and get in contact with the network.

This year’s programme includes highlights of activities carried out by EAHF members at national or local levels and examples of multi-stakeholder initiatives to address alcohol-related harm. New members will be given the floor to share how alcohol related harm is addressed through their activities and how membership in the alcohol and Health Forum helps towards their objectives ( Agenda).

[1] The Alcohol and Health Forum was set up under the EU strategy to support Members States in reducing alcohol related harm in order to mobilise voluntary action across the society.

The European Alcohol and Health Forum (EAHF) brings together a wide range of stakeholders, from non-governmental organisations to alcoholic beverage producers and retailers, from advertising professionals to medical professionals, to exchange good practice and step up work to reduce alcohol related harm.
