COVID-19 has exposed deep structural inequities, which unless redressed will undermine society, health and the economy now and into the future.
In the second webinar of the Governing Disruptions for Health Equity series we focus on the institutions, discourses and measurement of poverty and inequality.
We will hear from two experts - Professor Sharon Bessell from the Crawford School of Public Policy, and Anne Hampshire from The Smith Family. What we measure affects how we act, and Professor Bessell will discuss her ground breaking research in multidimensional poverty. How we talk about poverty and inequality also affects the types of actions taken to redress it, and Anne Hampshire will share work from The Smith Family highlighting the importance of focusing not just on material inequities, but also the essentials of life.
