Delivering Health Equity Tackling Inequalities
1st of May 2019 - RSM, London
Due to the huge amounts of positive feedback received during and post the HiAP 2018 - A Strategy for Improving Population Health conference which took place on February 6th this year, Govconnect are proud to announce HiAP 2019 - Delivering Health Equity, Tackling Inequalities.
For those who were not in attendance at the innagural conference or aware, Health in All Policies (HiAP) is an approach to policies that systematically and explicitly takes into account the health implications of the decisions we make; targets the key social determinants of health; looks for synergies between health and other core objectives and the work we do with partners; and tries to avoid causing harm with the aim of improving the health of the population and reducing inequity.
The HiAP 2019 conference will serve to provide help for local authority and NHS decision makers, sharing insight on how best to collate evidence, identify impacts, take action and prioritise interventions. It will provide all delegates with a number of pre conference toolkits and practical solutions which can help them deliver immediate steps towards rebalancing the many societal and health related challenges they may face.
