On Thursday 7th February, EUREGHA held its first Policy Briefing of 2013. The purpose of these meetings is to bring together EUREGHA members and discuss policy areas (legislative or non-legislative) that are of importance to their regions. The meetings will offer an opportunity to share knowledge on topics related to public health, and will be of an informative character to update members on the stand points of other members on each topic. This first meeting discussed the Tobacco Products Directive which was published on 19/12/2012.
