Action on social determinants of health an social health inequalities: reflexions and strategies

Date: Wednesday, July 11, 2012
Time: 01:00pm - 01:00pm
Location: K11
Organizer: Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Santé Publique

Today, there is an international consensus on the need to reduce the social inequalities of health by addressing not only the risk factors but also by modifying the social determinants more upstream. These determinants affect directly the conditions of the well-being of the populations.

Action on the social determinants of health calls for new public health approaches. In Europe, some national and regional health authorities have implemented actions targeting the social determinants of health. The purpose of this satellite symposium is to present some experiences in this field in France and in Great Britain.

Speakers: Marion Porcherie and Peter Duncan.
