Every country in the WHO European Region has some form of alcohol action plan. This handbook helps them review, adjust or strengthen their plans to further reduce the harm caused by alcohol. It explores ten areas for action: pricing, availability, marketing, illegally and informally produced alcohol, drink–driving, drinking environments, health care interventions, public awareness-raising, community and workplace action, and monitoring and evaluation.

The handbook is aimed primarily at people who work in health ministries, people who are developing a subnational or municipal alcohol strategy or action plan, and people who work in other government sectors on alcohol taxation, licensing or commercial communication policies.
