Growing Up in a Pandemic: health behaviours and the impact of COVID-19 on health inequalities among young people in Ireland

Project description

COVID-19 and health inequalities in adolescents

The COVID-19 pandemic exposed health inequalities and structural disadvantages across Europe, as well as wide income disparities. In Ireland, children and youth were widely affected. Research studies like Growing Up in Ireland and TeenPath at Trinity College Dublin, and the Royal College of Surgeons Ireland documented these inequalities. In this context, the EU-funded Teenpath Covid project will place young people at the core of the public health policy in Ireland by addressing long-term health inequalities that emerged and were aggravated by the pandemic. The project will integrate with the TeenPath study applying participatory and social network methods to explore how adolescents have experienced COVID-19 considering gender and ethnicity.
