The Irish Neonatal Health Alliance aims to support families affected by prematurity.

Our objective, through consultation with global networks of prematurity groups, healthcare professionals, educators, political decision makers and industry stakeholders is to foster the exchange of information, provide education to healthcare professionals and families and with one collective voice, to provide the platform for a coordinated and integrated program of collaborative support in the field of neonatal care in Ireland.
