** This advocacy campaign ran from November 2020 to January 2021**


The ISF would like to thank the hundreds of people who supported our work to advocate for the availability for Dupilumab in Ireland.  We would also like to extend our thanks to TDs and policy makers who supported the eczema and dermatology patient community in raising awareness of this important issue.

In February 2021, the HSE’s Executive Management Team supported reimbursement of this treatment.  Following this decision the ISF paused our campaign pending developments currently underway.  We expect patients struggling to manage treatment-resistant atopic eczema to be able to access this new treatment, through hospital dermatology clinics, by the summer 2021.

Please see our statements below for more information about this campaign.
