45 views

In June 2008, more than 40 businesses and non-governmental organisations responding to a European Commission initiative, agreed to take action to protect European citizens from the harmful use of alcohol. Markos Kyprianou, Former Member of the EC in charge of Health, and representatives of the businesses and NGO's signed in Brussels the Charter establishing the Alcohol and Health Forum. The Forum, scheduled to meet twice a year, is to focus especially on concrete actions to protect children and young people and to prevent irresponsible commercial alcohol communication and sales. The move comes at a time when an estimated 200,000 Europeans die every year because of harmful alcohol use. More than one out of four deaths among young men is attributed to alcohol. In order to give interested bodies and organisations from the EU and beyond, who are not Forum members, an occasion to follow the work of the Forum and to make their opinions known, the Charter establishing the European Alcohol and Health Forum foresees that an "Open Forum" will be convened once a year. Thursday 17 April 2008 was the day the Open Forum met for the first time. Androulla Vassiliou, Member of the EC in charge of Health, took part in the Forum and gave a press briefing about it
