Irish Doctors Environmental Association (IDEA)

[Updated February 16, 2012]

About the Irish affiliate

The Irish affiliate was founded 22 years ago by Sean and Mary Dunphy. About 10 years ago, the Irish branch of IPPNW combined with the organization, Irish Doctors Environmental Organisation (IDEA). IDEA seeks to promote the right to health and peaceful co-existence worldwide.

The main objective of the IDEA is to foster and promote, through education, publications and seminars, a concept of health as a state of physical, psychological and social well-being, which acknowledges the potential impact of environmental conditions, violent conflict, and inequalities within and between nations on that well-being.

How can locals get involved with the affiliate today?
