Addressing Health and Gender Inequalities through Policy Measures- Exploring the implementation of Health Impact Assessment (HIA) and the Athena SWAN Charter in Ireland using Action Research Methods

Session convener: Monica O'Mullane , University College Cork

The frame for this session will be to explore the implementation of two policy instruments being rolled-out presently by the Government of Ireland in order to tackle societal inequalities at a strategic policy level, using Action Research methods. In order to uncover the lived experiences of implementation, policy measures designed to address health inequalities and gender inequalities will be examined, two intersecting albeit distinct, for the purpose of this presentation, interfaces on the inequalities spectrum.
