Our Childrens Health Campaign

Today is Day 2 of the OurChildrensHealth campaign. Launched on May 20th 2014 the goal of this effort is to amend the 1970 Health Act to provide for automatic entitlement to a Medical Card for any child diagnosed with a serious illness.

Our Goal:

  • Automatic full eligibility for health services should your child be diagnosed with a serious illness or congenital condition, up to and inlcuding the required aftercare as specified by your consultant.
  • An addendum to the Health Act of 1970 to provide a legal basis for, and underpin this right.
  • A commitment from Oireachtas members to adopt and actively pursue this policy independently of any other party policy on health.
  • A fundamental re-evaluation of health policy in Ireland, that full eligibility is granted on the basis of medical need and not financial means.
