International Alliance of Patients’ Organizations (IAPO)
International Alliance of Patients’ Organizations (IAPO)

The International Alliance of Patients' Organizations (IAPO) is a unique global alliance representing patients of all nations across all disease areas and promoting patient-centred healthcare across the world.

We nurture relationships with members, partners and all those involved in the healthcare value chain and build dialogue with decision makers around the world to promote patient-centred healthcare.

We do this by:

  • Actively working with patients' organizations and building them up to be as effective as possible
  • 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
