Description:
The study of sexual health among the population in Ireland is at a relatively early stage. Before the ISSHR survey, there was little understanding of the relationship between sexual knowledge, attitudes and behaviours (KAB). A number of groups and organisations – such as the National AIDS Strategy Committee, the Department of Health and Children (DoHC) and the Crisis Pregnancy Agency (CPA) – recognised this lack. As a result, a scoping study for a national survey of KAB issues was commissioned in autumn 2002. The scoping study, having consulted widely with stakeholders in the area of sexual health and education, made a number of recommendations for a national KAB survey for Ireland. On July 17th 2003, the CPA and the DoHC published a tender document which requested proposals for the first national sexual KAB survey. The primary aim of the project, as set out in the tender document, was the collection of reliable nationally representative baseline information that would: • build a representative and reliable national picture of sex and sexual behaviour in Ireland • measure levels of sexual knowledge among people in Ireland • reliably assess national attitudes toward important constructs related to sex, sexuality, service use, etc, to examine patterns (similarities and differences) among different cohorts and patterns underlying these variations • examine, explore and reliably describe the interrelationships between knowledge, attitudes and behaviours in the context of theory, sexual health promotion and policy development
