National Voices’ conference How Can We Dismantle Health Inequity Together? ran over four Tuesdays in March 2021, with each day focused on a different theme.
The conference set out to explore the VCSE health and care sector’s role in tackling health inequity, and was supported by the Health Foundation and PPL.
Over the course of the conference, we covered the VCSE sector’s role in responding to the unequal impact of COVID-19, explored opportunities for cross-sector working and identified influencing priorities, and looked at how to tell stories of health inequity that will be better heard by decision makers.
We emerged from the conference with a greater understanding of health inequity, and with a greater commitment from charity colleagues, funders and partners to address this social dimension of health through their work. This report aims to bring together learnings from the conference, as well as identify key themes.
