Dr Mark Robinson
Professor Jean Woo
Social determinants of health are fundamental to understanding inequalities in health outcomes as well as devising policies and programs to tackle them. Drawing insights from research and experiences in population level strategies and community level programs in Scotland, Australia and Hong Kong, Prof. Jean Woo and Dr Mark Robinson will examine the drivers of inequalities of health and what can be done to improve the situation. The lessons learnt from contrasting societal contexts and life expectancies will have practical relevance to other countries and people from Government, social and medical sectors, academia and charities who want to devise effective solutions to reduce unfair and avoidable inequalities in health.
Free admission, all are welcome.
