IAPO is a unique global alliance representing patients of all nationalities across all disease areas and promoting patient-centred healthcare around the world.
Our members are patients' organizations working at the international, regional, national and local levels to represent and support patients, their families and carers. A patient is a person with any chronic disease, illness, syndrome, impairment or disability.
IAPO's vision is that patients throughout the world are at the centre of healthcare.
IAPO's mission is to help build patient-centred healthcare worldwide by:
Realizing active partnerships with patients' organizations, maximizing their impact through capacity building
Advocating internationally with a strong patients' voice on relevant aspects of healthcare policy, with the aim of influencing international, regional and national health agendas and policies
Building cross-sector alliances and working collaboratively with like-minded medical and health professionals, policy makers, academics, researchers and industry representatives
