5 High exposure, high burden of mortality and disease For men between ages of 15 and 64, 1 in 7 deaths were caused by alcohol (clearly premature deaths given the life expectancy in Europe) For women of the same age category, 1 in 13 deaths were caused by alcohol
7 Men vs. women in burden of disease Tobacco: men #1, women #4 Alcohol: men #3, women #12 Illegal drugs #20, women not in top #20 Huge differences between high- and low/middle income countries Alcohol consumption varies with emancipation: the more emancipated, the higher the alcohol- attributable burden of disease!

9 Globally For tobacco there are 6.30 million deaths in 2010, for alcohol 2.74 million deaths, and for drugs 0.16 million deaths In total in 2010, there were million deaths. Thus tobacco is causing more than 10% of all deaths (11.9%), and alcohol for about 5.2% and illegal drugs for 0.3%

14 European action plan to reduce the harmful use of alcohol (EAAP) action areas Leadership, awareness and commitment, as sustainable intersectoral action requires strong leadership and a solid base of awareness and political will Health services response, as these services are central to tackling health conditions in individuals caused by harmful alcohol use Community action, as governments and other stakeholders can support and empower communities in adopting effective approaches to prevent and reduce harmful alcohol use Policies and countermeasures on drink driving, as it is extremely dangerous to drivers, passengers and other people using the roads Availability of alcohol, as public health policies to regulate commercial or public availability have proved to be very effective in reducing the general level of harmful use and drinking among minors
15 EAAP action areas Marketing of alcoholic beverages, as systems are needed to protect people, particularly children and young people, from advanced advertising and promotion techniques Pricing policies, as most consumers, particularly heavy drinkers and young people, are sensitive to changes in the prices of alcohol products Reducing the negative consequences of drinking and alcohol intoxication, in order to minimize violence, intoxication and harm to intoxicated people Reducing the public health impact of illicit and informally produced alcohol, as its consumption could have additional negative health consequences due to its higher ethanol content and potential contamination with toxic substances Monitoring and surveillance, as relevant data create the basis for the appropriate delivery and success of responses
16 Best buys package population-based approaches Smoke-free environments Warning about the dangers of tobacco use Bans on tobacco advertising Raising taxes on tobacco Raising taxes on alcohol Restricting access to retail alcohol Bans on alcohol advertising Reducing salt intake and salt content of food Replacing trans-fat in food with polyunsaturated fat Promoting public awareness about diet and physical activity
17 Polydrug use among young adults Among young adults (aged 15 to 34), frequent or heavy alcohol users were, in general, between two and six times more likely to report the use of cannabis compared to the general population and between two and nine times more likely to use cocaine.

Practical descriptive reports within 4 months of each data collection to the municipalities 3. School reports to the schools 4. Local information INTO all levels of prevention work is a key issue
24 Importance of frequent measuring Every school, every parent, every prevention worker can see the current situation in their close community and can act accordingly. Not 2-3 years later but almost immediately
