The International Patient and Public Involvement Network was launched in London on 27th November 2017. Our vision is for a world where patient and public involvement is an integral part of health research. Our mission is that by working together we will build a global partnership that shares knowledge and promotes, supports and strengthens patient and public involvement (PPI) in health research.

Our objectives are to:

-       Promote and raise awareness of patient and public involvement in health research

-       Support and enable patients and public to be involved in health research

-       Develop ways of sharing experience, knowledge and expertise of PPI in health research

-       Work with organisations across the globe, including those from low and middle-income countries

-       Learn from each other and build capacity for patient and public involvement in health research

-       Support the assessment of the impact of PPI in health research on practice, policy and outcomes

-       Develop international standards and policies for patient and public involvement in health research
