The Academy is a member of the InterAcademy Partnership (IAP), the global network of medical Academies and medical sections of science and engineering Academies.Ongoing
The InterAcademy Partnership (IAP) is a global network of medical Academies and medical sections of Academies of science and engineering. It has 140 member Academies all over the world.
IAP aims to strengthen the capacity of Academies to enable scientists to provide evidence to governments on health and science policy. The network achieves this in several ways by:
- Encouraging the formation of Academies in countries where none exist.
- Facilitating interactions between individual national Academies.
- Running programmes to increase scientists’ ability to address science policy, and issuing statements on health issues of global concern
The Academy is a member of IAP and we served on the Executive Committee of IAP for Health (as it then was) from 2013 to 2019. The Executive Committee oversees the network’s strategy and activities. Our Vice-President - International represents us at the General Assembly and other events.
Prior to March 2016, the network was known as the InterAcademy Medical Panel (IAMP) but has since rebranded to cooperate more closely under as the InterAcademy Partnership bringing together the three networks of Academies - IAP for Health, IAP for Science and IAP for Policy.
