A European network of nongovernmental organizations for action on alcohol : report on a WHO meeting, Padua, Italy, 28-30 November 1994
AbstractThe success of the WHO European Alcohol Action Plan depends on the commitment and active participation of international organizations, Member States and governmental and nongovernmental agencies at national and local levels. In particular, a network of alcohol and health advocacy groups is needed to support nongovernmental action at local, national and international levels in line with the Action Plan. A meeting was organized by the WHO Regional Office for Europe as a first step in creating such a network. Representatives from nongovernmental organizations in the field of alcohol use attended. The participants agreed that existing networks and umbrella bodies should be brought together and used for this purpose. They discussed effective means of communication and adopted a timetable of coordinated action in support of the Plan. They would also work towards strengthening nongovernmental organizations' input to the WHO Conference on Health, Society and Alcohol in Paris in 1995
