Information about these workshops
These workshops will educate delegates about the principles of health inequality and the relationship between health equity and human rights. The workshops will cover the principles and definitions of health inequalities and how they can be measured and studied. The advanced workshop will delve more deeply into how policies at national and local levels aim to address health inequalities and the use of Health Impact Assessment (HIAs) to address health inequalities. Delegates will be given practical guidance on how to translate this knowledge into their own practice. The workshops will include a range of guest speakers from Public Health Wales, and will provide real world examples from Wales and across the world.
