As the COVID-19 Pandemic has powerfully demonstrated, there is a direct link between people’s income and their health, with people on lower incomes typically having poorer health outcomes than people with higher incomes. Health inequity is a prevalent issue in Australia, with many challenges due to low incomes and socio-economic disadvantage and barriers to access to health services.
Building on the findings from the ACOSS and UNSW joint report, Work, income and health inequity: A snapshot of the evidence, this webinar will explore:
· What exactly does the data show about the relationship between health and socio-economic circumstance?
· How could we improve the data in order to increase equitable access to health?
· How can the policy choices we make now help improve the health outcomes for vulnerable Australians?
· Importantly, how are the choices we are making now about COVID-19 impacting health outcomes for those with the least during this pandemic?
