Public Advisory Panel membership for National Survey of Sexual Health in Ireland


Research Area:

Sexual Health and Well being

What is the research about?

The Irish National Survey of Sexual Health (INISH) study is a collaboration between the University of Galway and the Health Service Executive. The INISH study aims to gain a comprehensive understanding of sexual health across diverse communities in Ireland. We hope the results of the study will have an impact on funding and implementing sexual health promotion activities. Panel members’ insights will directly influence the design of the study, its methodologies, and the way we engage with participants. By actively involving members of the public in the research process, we hope to foster inclusivity and capture a wide range of experiences, leading to more meaningful and impactful findings.
