BIAS: Gender Inequality in Healthcare and Research is a Science Week event supported and developed by RCSI/Rotunda Research Department and the HRB Mother and Baby Clinical Trials Network. The event is funded Science Foundation Ireland.
BIAS aims to challenge public perceptions about women’s health, and engage our audience on a variety of topics such as historical perspectives on women’s health, existing gender bias in medicine and research, and women’s medical issues including endometriosis, contraception and mental health.
This project aims to facilitate conversations around women's health and empower women by equipping them better to tackle biases in their healthcare when they arise by improving their understanding of the current issues that women face, the healthcare resources available to them, and how research participation is vital to future advances in women’s health.
