The Joint Action on Reducing Alcohol Related Harm (RARHA) 2014-2017 wascoordinated by the Portuguese governmental agency SICAD (General Directorate for Intervention on Addictive Behaviours and Dependencies). It was funded by the European Union under the second EU Health Programme, aiming to support Member States to take forward work on common priorities in line with the EU Alcohol Strategy and strengthen Member States’ capacity to address and reduce the harm associated with alcohol.
The aims of the Joint Action were to strengthen the knowledge base by improving access to comparable data on drinking levels and patterns and related harms and to foster the use of common and cost-effective approaches to inform and raise awareness on drinking patterns and alcohol related harms. The Joint Action produced tools to support action and public health policy planning to address alcohol as a key determinant of health and contributor to health inequalities.
