Chaired by Keith Wood, the Council is a multi-stakeholder national forum which will provide the platform to connect and mobilise communities, families and individuals into a national movement with one aim: supporting everyone to enjoy the best possible health and wellbeing.
The Council is established for an initial 3-year period and comprises 35 members from a wide range of sectors including the health sector, academia, older people, sport, non-government organisations, media, youth and diversity. They are recognised leaders and influencers in their respective fields who have a genuine passion for health and wellbeing. President Michael D. Higgins is the Patron of the Healthy Ireland Council.
