Campaign Kickoff: Call for Government Housing Scheme for Health Workers in Ireland

Dublin: The call for a government housing scheme to address the housing needs of healthcare workers in Ireland is gaining momentum, with Health Care Professionals Ireland spearheading an online petition and the Ballinasloe Indian Association initiating a campaign.

The petition, directed to high-ranking officials, including Minister of Rural and Community Development Heather Humphreys, emphasises the crucial role played by healthcare workers from overseas in Ireland’s healthcare system. Despite their dedication, many of these professionals are facing dire housing situations, which significantly impact their well-being and ability to effectively carry out their duties. The shortage of suitable housing, coupled with rising rents, further exacerbates their plight.

The petition highlights the urgent need for action, stressing that failure to address these issues could lead to a mass exodus of healthcare workers, ultimately undermining the healthcare system.

In addition to advocating for affordable housing schemes, the petition calls for expedited construction of housing projects near healthcare centres, financial assistance for healthcare workers to purchase homes or meet rental costs, and collaboration with local authorities, housing developers, health institutions, and community organisations to provide support for healthcare workers in need of housing.

Supporters are urged to join the campaign and sign the online petition to convey the pressing housing needs of healthcare workers to the government. It emphasises the vital contributions of healthcare professionals from abroad and underscores the potential impact of collective action in effecting positive change.
