Tackling the Health Divide: From Western Europe to Eastern Europe and Central Asia

Ticketing: Pre-booking essential
Professor Sir Michael Marmot
There are major health inequalities within and between countries in the WHO European Region. The health divide across the WHO European Region refers to the gap of up to 20 years in life expectancy between countries in the eastern part of the region and countries in the west. Efforts to improve population health in countries must be based on an understanding of how health is created or undermined by political, social, economic and cultural processes – the social determinants of health.
Professor Sir Michael Marmot will present some of the evidence and emerging findings of the Review on the Social Determinants of Health and the Health Divide in the European Region, focussing specifically on social determinants of health in countries in Eastern Europe and Central Asia.
