BIAS: Inequality in Women's Health and Research is a Science Week festival supported and developed by RCSI/Rotunda Research Department. The event is festival Science Foundation Ireland.
BIAS aims to challenge public perceptions about women’s health, and engage you 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.
