Tackling Health Inequities Through Social Justice
Format: Workshop

Exploring the power of community voice and agency in tackling health inequities and building healthy society 

Communities, public voice and agency have a powerful role to play in advancing health equity and healthy societies. Our panellists will bring together their global experience of community-focussed solutions to showcase how a real difference to people’s lives can be made by grounding health action and health systems in community settings, enabling meaningful community roles in health systems, and using community knowledge, innovation and experiential learning to support the critical transformations needed for healthy and equitable societies.
