What role does equity play in planning for positive policy change?
Please join us in Toronto on May 28th, 2012 for the full day HEIA Equity Forum which will bring together diverse, cross-sectoral stakeholders for a dialogue about ways we can reduce health inequities by improving quality through system-level innovation to reduce health inequities.
Discussion will include practical ways to develop better evidence and share lessons learned and best practices.
The Forum will profile dynamic speakers from Canada who will address the role of health equity in program and policy development, particularly during current economic times.
