The Evidence of Personal and Societal Determinants to Achieve Health Equity as a Public Health Practice
Health equity needs to become a priority practice in the public health sector; and measures to reduce disparities must be integrated into health programs and services. Social determinants of health such as poverty, unequal access ot health care and jobs, lack of education, stigma, and racism are underlying, contributing factors of health inequities. This conference will examine and discuss the key principles for promoting more equitable health outcomes for patients, families, and communities.
The 2021 Health Disparities Conference was designed to:
- Discuss public health practice to achieve health equity through integrated partnerships and collaborations.
- Examine the existing racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic disparities in health.
- Review systems to improve community voice and action to affect social and structural conditions that are known to have wide-ranging health effects on communities such as education, industry, and social justice.
Tailored to attendees' interests around community-centered basic and clinical research and health policy, this conference program was designed to highlight excellence in research and public health models that are sustainable, replicable, culturally appropriate, and that contribute to health equity.
