Healthcare Reform for Irish Patients
is that all Irish Patients can afford and access the medicines they need to get well, stay well and live well.
We are dedicated to affordable access to medicine
Medicines for Ireland is a pharmaceutical industry body committed to affecting real change and reforms to help ensure that patients across Ireland have access the medicines they need at affordable prices.
Since its foundation in 2016, Medicines for Ireland has been promoting the benefits of the increased use of non-patent medicines in Ireland.
Our members are the suppliers of the majority of medicine in Ireland to the HSE and patients directly.
As an organisation, our core objective is to improve the way Ireland procures and supplies medicines to help expand patient access to affordable, lifesaving and life-enhancing treatment.
- Enhance access to safe, high-quality medicines for patients across Ireland at an affordable price.
- Safeguard the supply of medicines to Ireland by helping to ensure supply chains remain secure and reliable.
- Innovate our approach to acquiring, supplying, and distributing medicines nationwide with the dual objective of pushing down costs and delivering greater equality of access for patients.
- Inform key stakeholders of the specific and wider benefits associated with the increased usage of off-patent medicines.
