The Joint Action on Reducing Alcohol-related Harm (RARHA) has been a three year project co-financed by the EU Health Programme. It has now completed its work and published its findings which include:

  • Monitoring of drinking patterns and alcohol-related harm, including data and survey results on heavy episodic drinking, attitudes towards alcohol policy, and harm to others.
  • Low risk drinking guidelines in RARHA partner countries and a common criterion for low risk, including findings such as the importance to legislate and enforce an 18-year minimum age for all alcoholic beverages across the EU.
  • A toolkit for evidence based good practices in action to prevent alcohol related harm, including concrete examples of good practices in certain Member States.
