Information on monitoring

Objectives The commitment's objectives are as follows:
- Activity (1): to ensure that the issue of alcohol-related harm is kept on the CPME agenda continuously and a platform is available for in-depth discussion of this issue, so as to engage the medical profession in debate.
- Activities (2)-(3): to ensure and optimise communication with the CPME membership on developments in alcohol-related policies at EU level and CPME's activities in the context of the EU Alcohol Forum, to inform CPME members and their policy activities and to create a context for the implementation of other commitments.
- Activity (4): to make information e.g. compiled under activities (2)-(3) available to CPME members continuously as well as allowing access to this information to a broader range of external stakeholders, including the general public.
These activities will be carried out on a continuous basis throughout the entire duration of the commitment as indicated.
Relevance (i.e. how will the commitment contribute to achieving the aim of the Forum ?) The commitment is relevant to the priority theme 'inform, educate and raise awareness on
the impact of harmful and hazardous alcohol consumption, and on appropriate consumption
patterns' as it ensures effective communication with the CPME members, i.e. National Medical
Associations, who in turn can act as multipliers. The exchange of best practice is also facilitated
thus. Additionally it is directly supportive of the implementation of other CPME commitments to
the EU Alcohol Forum as it creates a context for action. In this reporting period, key information
was thus transferred to the medical profession, both on a political level, e.g. the address by
Commissioner Dalli, as also on a technical level, e.g. the Scientific Opinion of the Science Group of the European Alcohol and Health Forum: Alcohol, Work and Productivity.
