CSO funding success for Health & Wellbeing group members

Dr Karen Lorimer has been awarded Chief Scientist Office (CSO) funding (£159,130) for an 18 month qualitative project entitled 'Men, Masculinities Deprivation and Sexual Health'. The project aims to:  explore how prevailing constructions of masculinity in the most socio-economically deprived areas of Scotland are related to sexual health attitudes and behaviours in adult heterosexual men; examine whether/how these are related to adverse sexual, physical or mental health consequences for men, their female sexual partners, and other women; and use the findings to develop interventions to improve sexual health for those in areas of high deprivation. Men and women, aged 18-40 years, residing in areas of high deprivation across Scotland, will be recruited to focus groups and individual interviews.

Karen leads a team, including Dr Lisa McDaid (MRC SPHSU), Prof Kate Hunt (MRC SPHSU), Dr Lesley McMillan (GCU), Dr Rosie Ilett (Sandyford, NHS GG&C) and Dona Milne (NHS Lothian).  Chris O'Sullivan is part of the Project Advisory Group, offering his insights and expertise, making this a success for the Working Group on Health and Wellbeing.
