The Tribunal of Inquiry into the circumstances of infection of persons with haemophilia with HIV and Hepatitis C commenced on 2nd May 2000. The Irish Haemophilia Society published a newsletter on a weekly basis throughout the hearings of the Tribunal of Inquiry. This newsletter was sent to all members of the Society in order to allow them to keep up to date with the evidence presented during the course of the inquiry. A total of 43 newsletters were compiled. Following 196 days of evidence, the Irish Haemophilia Society presented their final submissions and recommendations for the future between days 189-191 of the public hearings.
