Welcome to IAPO's Patient-Centred Healthcare Portal.
One of IAPO's aims is to advocate 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.
This Portal details IAPO's policy activities and background information on key issues in patient-centred healthcare.
As part of its work to define patient-centred healthcare, from 2004 IAPO has been working with patients' organizations worldwide to develop a Declaration to facilitate collaboration and promote patients' views.
