The annual liaison meeting with the Environmental Health Association of Ireland was hosted in Edinburgh in August. Professor Kofi Aidoo, REHIS President, chaired the meeting. Discussions covered a wide range of topics of mutual interest including organisational developments and updates, educational and training developments both professional and community, public health alcohol legislation in Ireland and the Irish EHO contribution, smoking areas in licensed premises, and the use of lobbying and media/social media in effective public health advocacy. Next year’s meeting will be hosted by EHAI in Dublin.
