Health Equity Forum: The Role of the Health System in Reducing Health Inequity

Health Equity Forum: The Role of the Health System in Reducing Health Inequity

PROVIDER: UNSW Australia
DATE: Wednesday 29 June, 2016
VENUE: UNSW Campus – Kensington, Room LG03 in the Wallace Wurth Building, Building C27 – enter through Gate 9 High Street Randwick.

SYNOPSIS:

There is a growing gap between the life expectancy of the most and least advantaged people in NSW. These unfair and potentially preventable differences place a heavy burden on the people affected, their families and the health system. What can the health system do to reduce these differences?

This forum will bring together International thought leaders, local decision-makers, researchers and service providers to discuss the latest thinking on the role of the health system in reducing health inequity.

A valuable Q&A session with Local Health District (LHD) Chief Executives on ‘Balancing acute services and population health needs with Equity’ will also form a part of this event.

Who should attend? All health staff, academics and civil society groups with an interest in the latest thinking on the role the health system can play in reducing health inequity and those working on Equity Focussed Health Impact Assessments (HIA) and Healthy Cities or in Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisations (ACCHOs).

ENQUIRIES: For more information please contact Sarah Ford Finance Manager, Centre for Primary Health Care and Equity UNSW on 9385 1547 or email sarahf@unsw.edu.au.
