Event Details

Based on research conducted by the Southgate Institute for Health, Society and Equity, Flinders University, and the South Australian Council of Social Service, this interactive workshop will highlight the growth in health inequalities in South Australia since the 1980s and encourage lively discussion about how we can reverse these trends. This is of vital importance to the future of SA because evidence indicates that more unequal societies are less successful on a range of measures.

The purpose of the workshop is to present the emerging findings of the project and encourage discussion about them and their implications for future action designed to make health in SA more equitably distributed in the future.

Aims of the workshop:
1. To disseminate research findings from a pilot study to create discussion about what economic, political and social factors have led to an increase in health inequities in SA.
2. To examine sector specific drivers of health inequities, including in the housing, employment, education, health and social security sectors.
3. To workshop ideas with a range of actors from policy, academia, NGO, civil society and government sectors.
4. To create policy recommendations for how South Australia can reverse the growth in health inequities to be included in a user friendly report as a tool for advocacy.

Benefits of attending: You will be able to contribute to the knowledge and understanding of the dynamics that have  produced inequitable population health outcomes in SA. You will also be able to suggest strategies to promote healthy public policy which are likely to reduce these health inequities.
