Addressing Inequities Through Health Promotion Policy in Australia: Trawling the Tides of Turbulence

Streaming Media

Description

Generally speaking, Australia has a well-respected universal health care system. However, investment in health promotion and prevention has often sat at the periphery of this system, with notable ebbs and flows in health promotion resourcing over past decades. In this presentation, Professor Smith will discuss the extent to which reducing health and social inequities has been incorporated - both explicitly and implicitly - in health promotion policy development and implementation in Australia. He will discuss the challenges and opportunities associated with these approaches for future equity-oriented national and global health promotion policy landscapes.

About the speaker: James Smith, Northern Territory Fulbright Scholar, Curtis Center for Health Equity Research and Training at the University of Michigan; Father Frank Flynn Fellow (Harm Minimization), Head of the Alcohol, Other Drugs and Gambling Team; and Director of the Freemasons Centre for Male Health and Wellbeing - Northern Territory, Darwin – Royal Darwin Hospital, Menzies School of Health Research, Casuarina, Australia.
