Awareness Week on Alcohol related Harm (AWARH)

Description

The aim of the Awareness Week on Alcohol related Harm is to raise Awareness among EU policymakers of the harms caused by alcohol.

AWARH 2017 will be held from 20th to 24th November 2017.

This year’s theme is: “Alcohol and Cancer”

Three steps can be taken to improve the AVMSD:

  • Minimise young people’s exposure to marketing of health-harmful products
  • Exclude alcohol and food high in fat, sugar and salt (HFSS) from products placement and sponsorship
  • Ensure that Member States can effectively limit broadcast from other countries on public health grounds

The AWARH partners call on Members of the European Parliament to grasp this opportunity and improve the Directive.
