The Department of Health are currently carrying out a review of the Health (Regulation of Termination of Pregnancy) Act 2018. For more information see here.
In March 2022, the Department of Health invited members of the public and interested parties to make submissions expressing their opinion on the operation of the legislation.
Members of AAC West carried out significant research on the legislation, policy and service provision in Ireland making comparatives with international practices and global best standards.
Based on this research, AAC West compiled 20 key recommendations. We urge the government to consider these recommendations to ensure equitable and timely access to abortion services in a respectful and caring environment for all.
