dc.descriptionIt is the policy of the HSE that public health information on alcohol must be impartial, authoritative and provided by expert sources. The HSE's information programmes are supported by clinical experts, are evidence-based, have clear behaviour-change objectives, and their impact is measured and evaluated. Public health information should not be connected to the alcohol industry as the industry’s obligation is to grow shareholder value. Promoting health and wellbeing and increasing industry profits are not coherent are incompatible strategic objectives. This policy on alcohol-related education and communications programmes formally separates HSE public health advice from partnership with the alcohol industry. The HSE will be working with a range of experts in all aspects of alcohol risk and harms including all medical & nursing faculties ,NGOs, Charities and other relevant expert groups to support evidence-based approaches in reducing alcohol related1 harm in Ireland. The HSE aims to ensure that in the context of any communications campaigns, service initiatives or health education programmes, or in the case of any proposed partnerships or co-funding arrangements, this policy identifies that: HSE services, divisions, or staff in the course of their work for the HSE and in line with World Health Organisation Guidance2 will not take part in campaigns, programmes or initiatives that are funded, or co-funded, directly or indirectly, by alcohol manufacturers and distributors or their related Social Aspect Public Relations Organisations (SAPROS). 3en
