Take action: the role of health professionals in addressing health equity

Health professionals – as the front-line and face of the health system – are key actors in helping address health inequalities. How can their training and working environments support them to help people facing disadvantages live longer and healthier lives?

The Annual EuroHealthNet Seminar will address these issues in relation to the wider public health and social workforce. Participants will discuss and explore new solutions to tackling health inequalities, including integrated community-based approaches, adaptations to health professionals’ training, and good practice initiatives such as social prescribing. It will also consider the need to collect and interpret data, helping to forecast health equity and disease burden trends. These topics are increasingly important as European societies – including health professionals – will need to adapt to rapid technological, economic, and demographic shifts which threaten to increase health inequalities.
