In the Spotlight this Month - Webinar - Intersections of Refugee Women's Health

This webinar presented by the National Collaborating Centre for Infectious Diseases (NCCID) in partnership with the NCC for Healthy Public Policy (NCCHPP) & the NCC for Determinants of Health (NCCDH) will offer an overview to public health physicians and policy makers in Canada on issues specific to refugee women. Professor Bilkis Vissandjée will address the concept of intersectionality and how it is currently applied in public health, through a gender lens. She will discuss the ways policy influences men and women differently and potentially disadvantages women specifically. In addition, she will present the challenges faced by refugee women in terms of access to care, mental health, trauma (psychiatric needs), and specific health experiences.

Tuesday January 29, 2019, 1 p.m. - 2 p.m. EST

Webinar - How Can We (and Why Should We) Analyze the Ethics of Paternalistic Policies in Public Health?
. 
The purpose of this webinar is to equip public health actors to conduct a critical and nuanced ethical analysis of public health policies or population-based interventions accused or suspected of being paternalistic. The Centre's Maxime Plante and Michael Keeling will first offer an overview of paternalism and will examine a few reasons why we might be attracted to, or – to the contrary – reluctant to accept, public policies that are called paternalistic. They will then offer a three-step approach to conducting a nuanced ethical analysis of population-based policies or interventions that are accused or suspected of being paternalistic.

Tuesday Febuary 19, 2019 from 2 p.m. - 3 p.m. EST

It will be followed by an optional 30 min. discussion period.
