Policy and Advocacy

The Royal College of Physicians of Ireland is a well-respected voice in public health debates. Our Members and Fellows lead initiatives and discussions that influence government policies, particularly in the areas of vaccination, alcohol, obesity, tobacco and ageing. Through our policy work, the College will continue to inform and influence government policy on public health and to be a passionate advocate, without conflict of interest, for good health.
