Millions of people in Ireland face an array of healthcare challenges, and many of them have never had access to health care.
As the number of people living with chronic illnesses in the country rises, the need for a wide range of health care services, both in and out of hospital, will grow.
As of 2020, the number was estimated to be more than 11 million.
For people living in rural areas and the far north, there is a need for more specialist services, particularly in the area of chronic conditions.
The Irish Times has produced this infographic which explains how to access healthcare services for people living on fixed incomes in the Republic.
