Conversation Series: Health equity, determinants of health and COVID-19

This webinar took place in English.

This was the first webinar in our conversation series regarding COVID-19, which started in April 2020. To register or see recordings for other conversations in this series, see the listing below.


As the COVID-19 pandemic evolves, it continues to follow and amplify lines of existing inequities. We recognize that you — our friends and colleagues in the public health community — are being called to go above and beyond, whether from your home office or on the front lines.

To support equity-informed responses, the NCCDH is hosting a series of community conversations on the topic. This is an opportunity for the public health field to explore equity-informed responses through action on the social and structural determinants of health. The conversation will connect practitioners with each other, and provide an opportunity to share experiences, resources, questions and solutions-focused ideas.
