AWARH is a joint initiative of European Alcohol Policy Alliance (Eurocare), European Association for the Study of the Liver (EASL), European Liver Patients' Association (ELPA), European Brain Council (EBC), European Federation of Addiction Societies (EUFAS) and United European Gastroenterology (UEG).
This year's campaign has been organized in close collaboration with WHO/Europe-Alcohol team. Three webinars will be organized during the Awareness Week by the partners and WHO/Europe:
The focus in this event is the impact alcohol has on COVID-19 and steps taken to reduce the risks.
The 8th European Awareness Week on Alcohol-Related Harm (AWARH) will be held on 16 - 20 November 2020.
The aim of AWARH is to increase awareness of the need to address alcohol-related harm in Europe and highlight the need to address it through an integrated approach to alcohol policy.
2020 is a special year, with all events held online. No personal meetings due to COVID 19.
Within the AWARH, the aim is to facilitate discussions around the overwhelming burden of alcohol-related harm in Europe, propose possible solutions to the problem, and be a catalyst for debate at European and national levels.
