Event Details

The NHMRC CRE in the Social Determinants of Health Equity will present the key findings from its 5-year research program at its final symposium on 16 September 2019: Promoting health equity: From knowing to action.


The symposium will include sessions on:

  • Infrastructure for health and equity – with presentations and discussion on the National Broadband Network; and urban planning in Greater Sydney
  • Globalisation: Trade and work – with presentations and discussion on trade and health; and work in a de-industrialised world, including on the implications of de-industrialisation for health equity; informal work; and paid parental leave
  • Effective policy to (really) close the gap/Are we decolonising? – with presentations and discussion on the Northern Territory Intervention; and Close the Gap


The event will provide rich empirical data about the opportunities and challenges in policy agenda setting, formulation, implementation and evaluation. Drawing lessons from across the policy case studies, the symposium will discuss issues relating to power and the political determinants of health. Not only will the event highlight ways forward for policy and research, the final session of the day will be an advocacy ideas panel that will examine civil society as a force for enabling healthier and more equitable societies.


This symposium will be of great interest to policy makers, advocacy groups and academics from many sectors who have an interest in the findings of the CRE and how the findings can influence the policy process to build action that promotes health equity.
