Who we are

Eurocare is an alliance of non-governmental public health and social organisations working on the prevention and reduction of alcohol related harm in Europe.

Eurocare was formed in 1990 by 9 organisations concerned with the impact of the European Union on Alcohol Policy in Member States. It now has around 55 member organisations across 24 countries in Europe, most of which are national or supranational umbrella organisations.

Eurocare is not affiliated and does not receive any funding from the alcohol industry or any of its social aspect organisations.

Member organisations are involved in advocacy and research, as well as in the provision of information and training on alcohol issues, and the provision of services for people whose lives are affected by alcohol related problems.

Eurocare is a member of the Global Alcohol Policy Alliance (GAPA), the European Public Health Alliance (EPHA) and the European Public Health and Agriculture Consortium (EPHAC). Eurocare is a founding member of the European Alcohol and Health Forum and participates in the European Commission's Health Policy Forum.
