Darker, Catherine D.; Donnelly-Swift, Erica; Whiston, Lucy
Ireland is still struggling to end the inequitable two-tiered health system and introduce universal healthcare (UHC). Public opinion can influence health policy choice and implementation. However, the public are rarely asked for their views. This study describes the demographic and attitudinal factors that influence the support of the public for the introduction of UHC. It provides data on a nationally representative survey sample of n = 972. There are high levels of support for the introduction of UHC (n = 846 87.0%).
