CPME Rapporteur: Dr Patrick O’SULLIVAN (IE)
CPME Secretariat: Mr Markus KUJAWA

CPME has a long-standing commitment to tackling alcohol-related harm by providing input at European level, and through its membership, also to national level policy-making in this area. Particular focus has been on encouraging doctors to take action on alcohol-related harm, both in direct patient contact and through their national medical association.
