The European Awareness Week on Alcohol Related Harm

Join us in the Zoom webinar on Alcohol & Cancer Monday 16 November 15:00 - 16:15 CET

Register in advance for this webinar:

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.    

The focus in this event will be the links between alcohol and cancer and the forthcoming Europe Beating Cancer Plan. In conjunction with this event, WHO Europe is also launching its new factsheet for policy makers, Alcohol and Cancer in the WHO European Region.
