NCCDH Conversation 3: Policy windows: Advancing health equity through COVID-19 recovery
The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted deeply entrenched social and structural inequities that impact the health and well-being of communities across Canada. As outlined in the annual report of the chief public health officer of Canada, pandemic preparedness, response and recovery actions need to prioritize health equity as a means to protect the people of Canada from the threat of future pandemics.
In this conversation, the NCCDH will host panelists who are working towards equity and justice for their communities. Speakers will be invited to share how COVID-19 response and recovery has created policy opportunities to advance equity within the social and structural determinants of health. We will explore how cross-sectoral actions for equity and justice can create resilience and lasting opportunities for equity.
