The Pandemic as a portal: How COVID-19 highlighted the social determinants of health - 8 July 2021

Please note that this event has passed.

As part of the ‘Age of Health’ series from Global Health and Social Health Medicine, four world-leading experts look back on the last year, its impacts and insights for Global Health and Social Medicine.

We discuss how the Pandemic shone a light on how health outcomes are defined by the social, economic and political structures in which we live. We explore what the Pandemic taught us about health inequalities and whether it marks a moment of real change in how the public and politicians think about society and health.
