Health in an unequal world

3 May 2018, 6.00 PM - 3 May 2018, 8.00 PM

Bristol Energy Hub, Waterfront, Bristol BS1 4XJ

It is estimated that half of the world’s population have inadequate access to full health coverage. Yet enjoyment of the highest attainable standard of health is one of the fundamental rights of every human being, according to the constitution of the World Health Organization.

This discussion event will look broadly at access to healthcare and inequality, with four researchers from the University of Bristol and Cardiff discussing their work on fertility, mental health, energy provision and transfusion medicine.

Join us for a discussion about the challenges and opportunities facing healthcare in today’s unequal world. We hope it may even leave you questioning your very definition of health.

Panel members: Gareth Griffith, Katherine Macinnes, Peter Thomas and Sara Davies, with Professor Rachael Gooberman-Hill, Director of the Elizabeth Blackwell Institute.

Event is from 6pm to 7:30pm, followed by a drinks reception.

Free and open to all.
