Building Networks

UK and Ireland Collaborative


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

Its purpose was 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 aimed to focus on a key policy area and  host an event on this topic.

In addition to events, the collaboration met to learn from others, to network, and discuss promising opportunities for action.


Past meetings:
