The Public Health team at Birmingham City University is working with the Politics of Health Group and The Equality Trust on A New Politics for Health – an exciting project involving organisations and activists from across the political spectrum that aims to reignite a movement for nationwide health equity. It will build upon and strengthen the provisions of the Ottawa Charter for Health Promotion, working to focus attention on the social and political determinants of health inequity. This will lead to the creation and promotion of the Birmingham Health Charter; a charter recognising the challenges to and need for health equity in the 21st century.
We have held a series of regional meetings to identify what the current demands for a healthy and equitable society look like. These ideas will be bought forward to the main event, A New Politics for Health – The Birmingham Health Charter, a national conference in Birmingham on the 23rd of November 2016.
Join us at the main event
Participants from around the country will take part in interactive workshops to develop the ideas that have emerged from the regional meetings, ultimately resulting in a Birmingham Health Charter.
Confirmed speakers, who will be joining us for the day, are Richard Wilkinson and Kate Pickett – authors of The Spirit Level: Why Equality is Better for Everyone, John Middleton – President of The Faculty of Public Health and Anuj Kapilashrami of the Peoples’ Health Movement.
