3rd Annual Cultural Inclusion Institute: Relating Cultural Inclusiveness to Social Determinants of Health, April 21-22, 2016
We live in a world of health inequities:
- 20% of children from the poorest of households are twice as likely to die before their fifth birthday compared to children in the richest.
- Women in Afghanistan have a lifetime risk of maternal death of 1 in 11, women in Ireland have a risk of 1 in 17,800.
- In the United States, while African Americans represent only 12% of the population, they account for half of all new HIV infections.
- Something must be done.
We must address the conditions of where and how people live if we are committed to improve the overall health disparities gap. It is evident that medical care alone is not enough. This conference brings together leading researchers, healthcare providers, patient advocates, educators, and students to exchange their knowledge and expertise in addressing the social determinants of health: economic stability, education, health and healthcare, neighborhood and the built environment, and social and community context.
