Institute Profile

The Institute of Public Health in Ireland (IPH) promotes cooperation for public health between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland. It was established in 1998 and has offices in Belfast and Dublin.  IPH’s primary mission is to strengthen public health intelligence and build public health capacity. The institute works with a range of partners to bring together people and organizations from across Ireland to promote collective action for sustained improvements in health. 

Over the past 10 years, the institute has produced more than 50 publications, held more than 30 conferences and workshops, and led the way in national public health policy discussions.  In recent years, IPH has been a key partner in two recently established research centers: the UKCRC Centre of Excellence for Public Health (in Northern Ireland), one of five new UK centers; and the national HRB Centre for Health and Diet Research, which aims to provide evidence based policy for diet and nutrition policy in Ireland.
