UK and Ireland Collaboration

The UK & Ireland Collaborative is a partnership between the UCL Institute of Health Equity and public health and government bodies in the UK and Ireland:

Its purpose is to work in collaboration to support and sustain action on the social determinants of health, to improve population health and reduce health inequalities across the UK and Ireland.

Each year the collaboration will focus on a key policy area and will host an event on this topic.  A short report outlining the opportunities and barriers for action will be produced following each meeting and available on this site. The theme for the first year of this collaboration is Early Years.  In addition to events, the collaboration will meet to learn from others, network, and discuss promising opportunities for action.

Event: Family Adversity: Children, Young People and the Next Generation

On the 19th of November 2015, NHS Health Scotland and the Institute of Health Equity hosted an event in Edinburgh: Family Adversity: Children, Young People and the Next Generation. Information on the programme for this event can be found here. The event was live streamed, and link to the recording of the conference can be found here. The symposium was well attended, and was followed extensively on twitter using the hashtag #FamilyAdversity. An overview of tweets during the day can be found here. We are currently drafting an overview of the day to be added to our website and circulated to relevant organisations.
