Introduction

Alcohol Action Ireland (AAI) is a non-governmental organisation who act as an independent expert voice for policy change on alcohol-related issues, advocating to reduce alcohol harm and improve public health and wellbeing in Ireland.

 

We campaign for the burden of alcohol harm to be lifted from the individual, community and State, and have a strong track record in effective advocacy, campaigning and policy research.

 

Our work involves providing information on alcohol-related issues, creating awareness of alcohol-related harm and offering public policy solutions with the potential to reduce that harm, with an emphasis on the implementation of domestic legislation: Public Health (Alcohol) Act.

 

AAI act as a consultant advisor to Ireland’s Health Services Executive (HSE) Alcohol Programme, informing strategic alcohol initiatives as an instrument of public health planning. We act as the secretariat to the Alcohol Health Alliance Ireland1, as its co-founding member, and a parliamentary Cross-Party Group on Alcohol Harm. We serve on the Board of Eurocare – European Alcohol Policy Alliance, Brussels.
