The health of the Irish population has improved considerably over the years. Life expectancy in Ireland is at the highest level ever, and people generally rate their health as good. A wide variety of factors, including lifestyle, environment, and deprivation impact on the health of a population. Health services are only one of many influences.
The Irish health services are currently undergoing a change in structure and organisation, which is being implemented through the Transformation Programme.
This document aims to inform the development of future health services. It is essential in planning health services that they are organised on the basis of identified need, and that priority is given to those areas that can produce the best potential benefit in improving health status. This is best catered for through a population health approach.
