OUR VISION: “The patient voice is at the centre of all health policy, care, research and innovation in Ireland”

OUR MISSION:  “We are the collective voice of patients, science and industry in Ireland”.  We inspire and promote patient involvement in the treatment and decision-making processes that affect healthcare in Ireland.  Patients and patients’ organisations have a right to be involved in healthcare policymaking and we advocate for their inclusion         in decision-making processes.  We work towards a future where all patients in Ireland will access the best available treatments, care practices and health technologies when they need it and where they need it.

HOW IS IPPOSI FUNDED?

IPPOSI operates as a public:private partnership.  Since 2007, IPPOSI has been co-funded by the Irish Department of Health, via the Health Research Board, which accounts for approximately 20% of IPPOSI funding.  The remainder of IPPOSI funding comes from a combination of leveraged EU/national level grants as well as industry member subscriptions and sponsorships.  IPPOSI aims to maintain a 50:50 ratio between public and private funding sources.
