The Department of Health is launching a series of new online public information events on women’s health, led by the Women’s Health Taskforce.
The ‘Tell me more…’ event series will feature expert speakers, including clinicians and patient representatives, engaged in conversation on a range of health areas relevant to women’s experiences.
Each event will focus on a different topic, providing women with trusted information and resources to support them in their health journeys. These topics relate to the first set of priority areas for women’s health identified through the Taskforce.
The series, which runs from 22 November to 3 December, will cover:
Women’s Health is a priority for this government as outlined in the Programme for Government’s commitments to ‘Promoting Women’s Health’. A Women’s Health Taskforce was established by the Department of Health in 2019 to improve women’s health outcomes and experiences of healthcare and following a recommendation from the Scoping Inquiry into the Cervical Check Screening Programme that women’s health issues be given more consistent, expert and committed attention by this department.
In September 2021, Minister for Health Stephen Donnelly TD published a report of a ‘radical listening’ exercise to hear women’s voices on women’s health through research commissioned by the Women’s Health Taskforce this year.
Led by independent researchers, over 270 women participated in these discussions from all over Ireland, sharing their experiences of, and wishes for, the Irish health system. The report provides invaluable insight into women’s experiences of healthcare in Ireland.
