Written answers (Question to Health)

Healthy Ireland gives us a vision of how we as a society can work together to bring about a Healthier Ireland where everyone, can enjoy physical and mental, health and wellbeing, to their full potential.

The Sláintecare Integration Fund was announced in September 2019. Healthy Ireland funding is being provided for the continuation of the programmes (listed below) previously supported by the Slaintecare Integration Fund.

The €6 million the Deputy refers to in the Budget 2022 Expenditure Report under the "Healthy Ireland/SláinteCare Integration Fund- health promotion and other pilot innovation programmes across the Health System ." is allocated as follows:

Sláintecare Integration Fund / Healthy Ireland Programmes


Smoking Cessation Supports, maternity services


HealthEIR Community Based Social Care


Community Mothers Programme


Self Management Support and the Living Well Programme*


Social Prescribing*


Sheds for Life


Integration of Childhood Obesity Services in Primary Care through Education


Online STI Testing


Student Sexual Health Service (Athlone Institute of Technology)


North Dublin Integrated Community STI Service




*Note there are a number of projects under each of these two headings.

The allocation table on page 113 of the Budget 2022 Expenditure Report is a rounded figure of €6m, the €5,801,000 tabulated above is the full expenditure allocated to these programmes for 2022 and as such there is no unallocated amount remaining.
