Our Study:

We believe that health is a human right, a belief that is supported by the World Health Organisation (WHO, 1946). This research considers improving access to healthcare for women experiencing homelessness in Northern Ireland, with the hope that this will lead to better health outcomes and therefore better social outcomes, with the larger scale hope that this will result in reduced length of time homeless.
