This Action Plan will improve health outcomes and experiences for women in Ireland. After listening to women of all ages and from all walks of Irish life, we are changing the way we work on women’s health:
1. We will put listening to women at the heart of policymaking.
2. We will invest in women’s priorities for women’s health; and
3. We will take action to improve the health services and supports available to women and girls across the country in the near term.

In 2022 we have increased investment in new developments for women’s health by €31 million, with a full year cost of €48 million¹. This investment means this Action Plan is fully funded for 2022.

  • We will increase access to and provision of services for women with drug and alcohol use
  • We will continue enhancing community care for people who use drugs by providing health and social care services in the community to meet identified health needs. We will focus on ensuring access to services for women, people in rural areas, ethnic minorities and the LGBTI+ community
  • We will contribute to the EU Action Plan on Drugs, aiming to reduce barriers to treatment, ensure services respond to the needs of women and increase awareness of services. The Action Plan also commits to tackling gender-based violence towards women who use drugs to break the cycle of drug use and violence
  • We will progress the delivery of gender-specific drug and alcohol services
