Input into policy processes
The information and tools developed in RARHA will serve the planning of public health policies on alcohol. An interlinked aim is to support the renewal of the EU alcohol strategy. The aims set in 2006 have not yet been reached and the cornerstones for success – up-to-date knowledge base and wide awareness of alcohol related harms – still require more work.
The RARHA work process includes expert/policy maker meetings to discuss findings and ways forward. Part of the results will be presented in the form of policy briefs. RARHA is due to end with a final conference in 2016, which is probably the earliest possible year for the launch of a new EU alcohol strategy.
