Tackling inequalities in health is a focus for all our work.

IPH was established in 1998 and has offices in Belfast and Dublin.

Our vision is to work towards ending health inequalities using a community development approach. We aim to be the leading organisation championing community development approached to tackling health inequalities. To be a centre of expertise that develops best practice, advances knowledge and develops tools for action. To ensure that communities can define and represent their own health needs and design and implement radical solutions.
