Sir Michael Marmot's
IHE team

World Medical Association Presidency

We are delighted to announce that our Director, Professor Sir Michael Marmot is now President of the World Medical Association, an independent confederation of 111 national medical associations all over the world.

Michael plans to use this opportunity to promote the role of doctors, and other health professionals more broadly, in addressing social determinants of health, building on our report Working for Health Equity: The Role of Health Professionals.

In March 2015, in the build up to this year long presidency, Michael and the IHE team worked with the World Medical Association and the Canadian Medical Association to hold a Global Symposium: The Role of Physicians and National Medical Associations in Addressing the Social Determinants of Health and Increasing Health Equity.

In the coming year, Professor Sir Michael Marmot will continue to work with a number of organisations to develop this agenda.
