The event will provide an opportunity to learn from Sir Professor Michael Marmot and Professors Goldblatt, Siegrist, and Lundberg about the overarching principles for policy and practice that help reduce health inequalities across the life course. The event will also present an opportunity to hear and ask about the research findings, challenge MEPs in the European Parliament and officials from the European Commission to incorporate the recommendations in existing, emerging and future initiatives, and enable discussion of how the principles can best be taken up and promoted in various policy initiatives.
The overall aim of the event is to raise awareness of the findings and recommendations so that they help shape policies in diverse sectors to collectively work towards improving health and reducing health inequalities. With a new European Parliament, a new European Commission and a mid-term review of the Europe 2020 strategy underway, the time is ripe for policies to be developed based on the very latest pan-European research evidence.
