Public Forum: The Politics of Poverty and Public Health

The World Health Organization says health inequalities result from “a toxic combination of poor social policies and programmes, unfair economic arrangements, and bad politics.”

Canadians might well ask: “Why is it so hard to reduce poverty and close the health equity gap in such a rich country?”

A panel of eminent political and public health leaders, as part of the Canadian Public Health Association Centennial Conference, will reflect on this challenge and debate the politics of the way forward.

Everyone welcome!
