As regional leaders, CUHK and The University of Queensland (UQ) are organizing a series of webinars on health equity in the coming months to generate dialogues in this topic of global significance.

Healthy ageing is a goal for all ageing societies, yet there are inequalities in healthy ageing. How should we measure this as an outcome? Both personal and environmental factors contribute to healthy ageing.  Speakers from a diverse background from CUHK and UQ will explore these issues and discuss how society as a whole may facilitate healthy ageing in the context of social determinants.
