This conference aims to increase awareness and understanding of how societal factors determine the health of Canadians. As we deepen our understanding of the relationship between social determinants and health, we develop a fresh understanding of the causes of health and illness, and correspondingly build upstream approaches to health policy. We have a unique opportunity to promote collaborative population health strategies to strengthen these determinants.
Conference themes include: health services, education, employment & working conditions, income & income distribution, unemployment, early life, food security, housing, social exclusion and social safety net. The event concludes with a panel presentation of leading policy makers who will reveal how inequalities in health status can be addressed.
Poster sessions run concurrently - submissions can be made online.
This national conference is jointly sponsored by: Health Canada's Health Policy Research Program York University's School of Health Policy and Management CIHR Institute of Population and Public Health and Centre for Social Justice.
