Publication – Policy Approaches to Reducing Health Inequalities: Social Determinants of Health and of Health Inequalities

This document explores the social determinants of health and the social determinants of health inequalities. It's part of a series of short documents based on the longer briefing note, Policy Approaches to Reducing Health Inequalities. The series is meant to provide a brief discussion of each of the eight policy approaches discussed in the longer document as well as provide a conceptual context for this work.. To read more, click here.

Workshop – Policy Approches to Reducing Health Inequalities

Val Morrison led a workshop on Policy Approaches to Reducing Health Inequalities at the Canadian Public Health Association's annual conference (CPHA). Click here to consult the PowerPoint presentation.

Coming soon

Based on the content developed for the workshop offered at CPHA, Val Morrison will lead a similar workshop at The Ontario Public Health Congress (TOPHC) in March 2017. During the course of the next year, we will continue to develop short documents based on this work.

Webinars

The NCCHPP participated  in a project with the National Collaborating Centre for Determinants of Health on intersectionality. This collaboration resulted in two webinars which took place in December 2016. Recordings of these are available via the NCCDH website.

In March 2017, the NCCHPP hosted two webinars on Policy Approaches to Reducing Health Inequalities. Click here to have a look at the PPT presentation and the recording.
