Description:
THE Irish Study of Sexual Health and Relationships is the first national study of sexual health in Ireland. The value of a sexual-health study lies in its ability to examine the complex interplay between individual factors and social relationships within a social, economic and healthcare context. The effectiveness of any strategy for knowledge, attitude and behavioural change is sensitive to context. It is thus essential to understand the patterns, contributors to and consequences of sexual health and ill-health in order to shape policy and practice. The challenge is to identify and understand unmodifiable risk factors (such as age) and modifiable factors (such as knowledge), so that these can be either taken into account or targeted for change, as appropriate, in sexual-health promotion and treatment activities. This report is one of three specialist sub-reports that supplement the main overview report which examines the information produced by the first representative sexual-health study of the general adult population in Ireland: the Irish Study of Sexual Health and Relationships (ISSHR). This was an anonymous telephone survey of over 7,000 adults aged 18-64 in the Republic. The data was collected in 2004/5.
