Social Determinants of Health Webcast 4: Housing, Communities & Neighbourhoods
About the webinar
We all need a home. None of us can go about our lives, raise a family, go to work or stay healthy, without a stable, safe and affordable place to call home. We also need healthy communities by design - access to recreation and open space, healthy foods, medical services, public transit and safe transportation.
Housing, Communities & Neighbourhoods will explore the links between determinants of a healthy living environment and health and wellbeing. Facilitated by Tessa Boyd Caine, CEO of Health Justice Australia, a panel will explore social and economic responsible public policy for people experiencing poverty and disadvantage.
Get to know:
• the evidence linking health and planning
• how to advocate for a fair and equitable housing system where low income Australians have access to safe, secure and affordable housing
• how to identify vulnerable families and pathways to care
