ACHWS Creative Coffee Break Conversation: Health Inequalities
07/12/2021 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am
An event by Arts Culture Health and Wellbeing Scotland.
“Health inequalities are the unjust and avoidable differences in people’s health across the population and between specific population groups.
Health inequalities go against the principles of social justice because they are avoidable. They do not occur randomly or by chance. They are socially determined by circumstances largely beyond an individual’s control. These circumstances disadvantage people and limit their chance to live longer, healthier lives.”
