News & Events


Our Work


Flunited is a national campaign, led by the IPA, which aims to raise awareness about the importance of vaccinating children against the flu. It encourages parents and guardians of children aged 2–17 years to join the ‘Flunited’ team, and make a collective effort to give flu the red card. 

Advice for the Elderly

By 2036, 1 in 5 people in Ireland will be over the age of 65.

It will be of great importance to the IPA to ensure all healthcare services are operating with a preventative approach.

Support Groups

The IPA are here to act as a go-between for any patient or their family that feels they have not received adequate care and attention through the Irish health care system and can also put you in touch with support groups that might help. 

About Us

The Irish Patients’ Association’s Mission is to keep the patient at the centre of the healthcare system. It does this by advocating for the needs of patients to be paramount while working in partnership with health providers. Through contact with patients, their families, and their carers, the Irish Patients Association (IPA) keeps abreast of ongoing and emerging patient needs. The Association addresses various committees, working groups and public bodies on behalf of patients.
