What is SOPA

SOPA stands for Together for a responsible attitude towards alcohol consumption. The SOPA project began in October 2016 and ends in December 2020.

The main goal of the project is to reduce the excessive drinking of Slovene adults and thus prevent the negative consequences of hazardous and harmful alcohol consumption for an individual, his relatives and broader society.

We aim to achieve this by establishing an interdisciplinary approach and by linking different sectors, such as the healthcare and social sector, non-governmental organisations as well as municipalities, the police and the media. We will prepare a complete proposal to implement the SOPA approach on a systematic level also after the end of the project.

Project is co-financed by the EU from the European Social Fund and the Republic of Slovenia. The project is being lead by The National Institute of Public Health Slovenia.
