Analysing graphs and statistics
Crowe was commissioned by the Department of Health to review Ireland’s current National Sexual Health Strategy (NSHS), as part of the development of the next strategy for 2023 to 2030.

The review identified 56 priority actions within the NSHS, assessing 49 as having been successfully completed. The findings benefitted from comprehensive stakeholder input, which helped to contextualise the challenges, policy changes, and service improvements that have been apparent during the lifecycle of the NSHS, and which also enabled and influenced 32 indicative recommendations to be considered for the new strategy. 

The review supports the continuation of a life-course approach to sexual health, which recognises and accepts the importance of developing healthy sexuality throughout childhood and adolescence and builds on this principle for positive sexual health and wellbeing into adulthood and older age.

Hildegarde Naughton, Minister of State with Responsibility for Public Health, Wellbeing and the National Drugs Strategy, welcomed its publication.

“Given the pace of change in this area of health, the recommendations of the review also provide a strong foundation for future planning and I look forward to supporting future service developments, to be laid out in the next version of the strategy,” she said.
