Das Nationale Programm Alkohol (NPA) wurde bis 2016 verlängert. Es setzt sich zum Ziel, die Kompetenzen der Menschen im Umgang mit Alkohol zu stärken und den Alkoholmissbrauch durch geeignete Maßnahmen einzudämmen.

Le Programme national Alcool est prolongée jusqu'en 2016. Il vise à renforcer les compétences des personnes vis a vis de l'exposition à l'alcool et à réduire l'abus de l'alcool par des mesures appropriées.

Tre sono i punti al centro della proroga del PNA: la tutela della gioventù, la sensibilizzazione della popolazione ai pericoli della dannosità del consumo problematico nonché una coordinazione ancora più efficace delle molteplici attività di prevenzione. Invariata resta l’idea guida secondo cui la prevenzione in Svizzera deve fondarsi su conoscenze scientifiche («Evidence-based Policy») e promuovere mesure comprovati.

The NPA’s extension period until 2016 will focus on three main objectives: the protection of minors, raising the general population’s awareness of the harmful effects of excessive alcohol consumption, and the improved coordination of the diverse prevention campaigns. The central concept of structuring alcohol prevention in Switzerland according to evidence-based policy and of promoting successful measures remains unchanged.
