Social Determinants of Health: Webcast 1 - A Framework
About the webinar
It’s been more than 10 years since the WHO Commission on the Social Determinants of Health delivered its final report on how to reduce inequities in power, money and resources and people’s daily living conditions in order to improve health equity. So what’s changed since then?
Social Determinants of Health: A Framework will take a look at the theory of social determinants of health (SDoH) and the evidence that supports key action areas. Facilitated by Tessa Boyd-Caine, CEO of Health Justice Australia, a panel of experts will provide the baseline for building shared language around individual lifestyle factors, social and community networks, and general socioeconomic, cultural and environmental conditions in 2019.
