Eurocare`s vision is a Europe where alcohol related harm is no longer one of the leading risk factors for ill-health, early death, violence and disability, where innocent third parties no longer suffer from the drinking of others and where the EU and its Member States recognise the harm done by alcohol and implement effective and comprehensive policies to tackle it.

ENSP is an international non-profit association, created in 1997 under Belgium law (ID 16377/97), which aims to reduce tobacco consumption and develop a common strategy amongst organisations active in smoking prevention and tobacco control throughout Europe, by sharing information and experience, through coordinated activities and projects, by creating synergies among public health advocates thus increasing their capacity to direct their actions more effectively. ENSP acts as the lynchpin for members creating a central, cohesive force for the European tobacco control movement.

Our vision is a future where our fellow Europeans will not suffer ill health and early death caused by tobacco. We want children to be able to grow up without being targeted with messages that seek to lure them into a lifetime of addiction. We want all Europeans to be able to breathe clean air unpolluted by tobacco smoke. We aim to make our continent completely smoke-free by 2040.

As we communicate more freely and cross country borders more frequently, we are aware that our countries do not stand alone: tobacco control is at different stages in all European countries, so ENSP undertakes to use the most effective evidence in policy and practice to work together towards a common goal. Members can use past experience in other countries and adapt such experience to their needs by joining the ENSP network. ENSP members collaborate to agree on a common policy and speak in one voice, thus strengthening the European tobacco control effort and reinforcing European public health messages.

To eliminate the use of tobacco products, ENSP believes that all European countries need to implement comprehensive tobacco control strategies, including high taxes, comprehensive bans on direct and indirect advertising of tobacco, smoking bans in public and workplaces (including the hospitality sector), introduce strong text and pictorial warnings on tobacco packages and move towards standardised packaging.
