Healthy Ireland – A Framework for Improved Health and Wellbeing 2013 – 2025

Healthy Ireland cover

Healthy Ireland is a new national framework for action to improve the health and wellbeing of our country over the coming generation. Based on international evidence, it outlines a new commitment to public health with a considerable emphasis on prevention, while at the same time advocating for stronger health systems.

It provides for new arrangements to ensure effective co-operation between the health sector and other areas of Government and public services, concerned with social protection, children, business, food safety, education, housing, transport and the environment. It also invites the private and voluntary sector to participate through well-supported and mutually beneficial partnerships.

It sets out four central goals and outlines actions under 6 thematic areas, in which all people and all parts of society can participate to achieve these goals.
