Public health information must be evidence-based and not connected to the alcohol industry to be credible

The HSE today (Thursday April 23rd 2015) announced its new policy on alcohol-related education and communications programmes, which formally separates HSE public health advice from partnership with the alcohol industry. The HSE will be working with the recently formed Alcohol Health Alliance, joining the Royal College of Physicians, Alcohol Action Ireland, the Alcohol Forum and other partners to support evidence-based approaches to reducing alcohol harm in Ireland.
