European Public Health WEEK

17-21 May 2021


Joining forces for healthier populations


Friday 21 May: 


The pandemic has had a devastating impact on the most disadvantaged groups, increasing health inequalities. How can public health responses protect the most vulnerable?



Health inequalities; vulnerable groups e.g. migrants, ethnic minorities, homeless people, low paid workers; social protection; (domestic) violence against women and children; diversity dimensions of health (e.g. culture, gender, religious beliefs, marital status, ethnicity, parental status, age, education, physical and mental ability, income, sexual orientation, occupation, language, geographic location); Universal Health Coverage; World Day for Cultural Diversity for Dialogue and Development; vaccine hesitancy (since the more disadvantaged are often less willing to have vaccines)
