Become a Member of the AHPI

Every year, more and more people in Ireland are becoming qualified as Health Promotion practitioners. These people are joining an existing pool of experienced and highly qualified professionals who are already working in the area. The AHPI aims to bring these people together in order to create a growing community of Health Promotion professionals. In doing this, the AHPI can help to build greater awareness of the Health Promotion, as well as the issues it concerns itself with. In order to improve the profile of Health Promotion nationally, the AHPI must work to ensure that partnerships are created between counties, organisations and communities.

Who can join?

Membership of the AHPI is open to staff employed to undertake the facilitation or coordination of health promotion, education programmes and health promotion research as their main role. Membership is also open to staff whose role includes an element of health promotion, health education and health promotion research and to staff who have a specialist certificate in health promotion. Students of health promotion are eligible to join for a reduced membership rate. In addition, if you have a qualification in health promotion and are currently seeking work in the area, you are eligible to apply for membership.

Your membership of the AHPI will help advance and develop the future of Health Promotion and Health Education in Ireland.
