SHAAP provides the authoritative medical and clinical voice on the need to reduce the impact of alcohol related harm on the health and wellbeing of people in Scotland and the evidence-based approaches to achieve this.

SHAAP was set up in 2006 by the Scottish Medical Royal Colleges through their Scottish Intercollegiate Group (SIGA). As a partnership, it is governed by an Executive Committee made up of members of the Royal Colleges, including the Royal College of Nursing.

SHAAP works in partnership with a range of organisations in Scotland and beyond. Key partners include Alcohol Focus Scotland, the British Medical Association (BMA), the Scottish Alcohol Research Network (SARN), the Alcohol Health Alliance, the Institute of Alcohol Studies, Eurocare and the European Public Health Alliance (EPHA).
