Description:

IPH welcomed the opportunity to respond to a Department of Finance (RoI) consultation on the forthcoming sugar sweetened drinks tax in the Republic of Ireland. Since 2011, IPH has been undertaking research to inform policy on the potential of sugar sweetened drinks taxes to contribute towards addressing the problem of overweight and obesity on the island of Ireland. IPH are concerned to ensure that the tax is implemented to maximise public health benefits anticipated to accrue from such legislation.
