Description:
The Department of Health published its strategy document on the development of effective health care, Shaping a Healthier Future in 1994. This gave guidance to the Health Boards on the direction that they should take in managing the health services during the 1990s. One of the key concepts in that strategy is that efforts should be made to determine Health Gain and Social Gain, and to refine these concepts with appropriate measures of population health. The National Health Promotion Strategy recognises that Smoking, Alcohol and Drug Misuse have a huge impact on health. They interact with each other and are responsible for significant damage to personal and social life. Appropriate control of these substances could improve the health of our population. This survey on Smoking, Alcohol and Drug Use in Cork and Kerry is a comprehensive and scientific examination of the interaction between these substances in Cork and Kerry. It provides a baseline epidemiological profile of substance use in the community. The survey's findings are being used to guide the Health Board in developing prevention and treatment strategies, and will therefore be an important contribution to our measures of health and social gain in this area. The Southern Health Board is striving for excellence, quality and a committed and caring service to our community. I have no doubt that this survey will help us to fulfil these aspirations, and congratulate the Department of Public Health for undertaking this research.
